This walnut piece can be used as a vase (weed pot) or a candle holder. The top piece is maple with a tenon, but a friend thought is was too dark (not enough contrast), so I painted it black. Some texturing on the sides and some gold wax was put in the middle ring for a reverse gold look. Inside is hollowed out. 5" dia. Finished with tung oil and Beall buffed. Thanks for looking and all comments welcome, Don L.
