these turned out great – in the main picture, what species of wood is used on the second from the left (some type of ebony?). Also – what was your finishing method?

Thanks for sharing.

That was a piece of rotten wood that i stabilized, and then filled with acrylic, and turned down. It wasa trial piece to see how such an idea would turn out, but liked it so much i finished it and added it to the lineup

If the brewery beers are as good as the handles you both have winners.

Bill, I sand to 220-ish, 4-5 coats of thin Ca, and wet sand with micromesh, sometimes I’ll use acrylic polish after

Nice Job on the handles. What did you finish them with?

Wow! I love those. That’s a whole collection of them and they are all different. That’s a colorful way to tell what’s what. Nice work.
