Here is the result of some much needed shop time for ME. The finial is made of walnut and colored with sharpie. It had 10 coats of wood turners finish on it. Comments welcome. Thanks. Russell

Nice work! Very nice for a Sharpie! How many times do you have to “color” it with the Sharpie? The gloss is strictly from the Woodturner’s Finish???

I colored the finial with 2 coats from the sharpie. The gloos on the body is 10 coats of the wood Turners finish. Then it is wet sanded. Thanks for the comments.

Very pretty and dainty piece! Finial goes really well with the vessel, like a work of art.
