This is a set I did a while ago that has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust. I have always favored it but was not impressed with the finish it had. I stripped it down and used sanding sealer and Generals Enduro-var gloss and then tamed it back down with Renaissance wax and steel wool to break the shine a little.

I MIGHT use this set as the second entry into the contest.

Madrone Burl and Ebony.

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate the comments and honest critiques.

Thank you Jim, I am far from being expert. I still have so much to learn but I am getting better! :)

Nice work again Jen, these are all very different but the use of the same material pulls them together as a kind of set, nice finish the burl looks good with a softer sheen, let know how the competition goes :: ))

They are beautiful, Jen. How big are they?
