Superb Piece ! The Spalted lines in the Maple go great with the Black… How did you ebonized the Walnut?

Sorry, I should have clarified better. It is a poorman’s ebonized walnut… Dyed with black ink. Thanks for the comments.

Fantastic job. Love the design. The bottom foot and finial are well balanced to the body of the piece.

Keep it up.

Looks fantastic. Here is a link for ebonizing that is inexpensive and may help others.
