This looks fantastic Marty. I just wonder how you dyed the knots?

Hey Mike, coloring just the knots is done in this manner:
1. one coat of sanding sealer
2. two to three coats spray lacquer, satin
3. apply gel stain to carved area with a small brush and wipe off surface with clean rag.
4. repeat step 3 as needed to get a uniform color in the carved areas
5. finish with a final coat of spray lacquer
