This is an old oak knot that a friend gave me. When I got it, it was “even” across the top. Did a lot of Dremel and sanding work on it and then polished it with my own special oil/wax blend. It will be someone’s Christmas present. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Sorry about pics…they could have been better.

Beautiful, Jay!
Is the black color an inlay or part of the natural wood?

lew—————-well…it’s actually the wood but there were cracks/fissures in it and I filled them with a glue/wood dust paste. Luckily it all came out the same color when it as sanded down and the finish was applied. It looks really nice in real time.
