Nice Slimlines. Curious, what was your method to blacking out the lines on a few of them? I’ve seen people use string and friction to do it. Seems it would be very difficult to ebonize such a small detail with stain. My money’s on burning.

Looks like wire burning to me. Typically a piece of thin gauge wire with handles at either end. You can use a thin parting tool to create the groove and then burn it in with the wire while the lathe is spinning. Creates a nice darkened line.
