    Black Walnut Vessel

    More Walnut... this piece had some wild figuring. It ended up 9" wide and 3" tall. The collar is a piece of ebonized Cherry w/ a few coats of lacquer applied. The finish on the Walnut is antique oil, buffed with Carnuba wax. Comments/critiques/suggestions/opinions welcomed.

    Sweet-looking piece, Mark. I like the collar a lot. From the outside it looks like the hole is one size, but then looking in from the top, you can see the opening is smaller.

    BTW, the pics look too sharp. Sorry guys, it's an inside joke.

    That's some beautiful wood, a very pleasing shape and a gorgeous finish. Pretty much perfect, I'd say. I really like the collar, too.
