    Hickory HF Vase

    Well finially got some time in the shop yesterday and today. I had a chuck of hickory sitting on the shelf that I thought would make a nice HF. So I started on it. The LOML wanted a foot on it so I gave her a foot. Doesn't look to bad but I thought it would look better without. But hey what do I know. I also put a ebony collar on it and a detachable finial. It has a couple of coats of Minwax Antique Oil. Will let it set for a week then buff it. It is 9" tall, 12" with the finial and 5 1/2" across. Merry Christmas to all.

    Thanks for the comments. This was a fun one to do as it was my frist ebony collar with the finial as a cap. I did another one which I will probably post tonight.

    I thought I had commented on this one Bernie, but I guess not. I think you did a great job on it. I agree with Fitz...you're getting this finial thing down.
