I was not sure about the pattern to start with but when applying the last coat of finish a friend came in and asked how much when I told them they brought it before the varnish had dried need I have worried.
This measures 8" X 2" made from field maple sprayed with ebonising spray and the leaves were done with Jo Sonja iridescent paints and then acrylic satin spray. I turned and sanded the three little feet to help lift this piece rather than my usual flat type bottom.
I ended up taking this photo in sunlight to highlight the pattern

Very nice.

A question about an the three feet, were they turned as a ring and then the gaps cut or did you make them separately and glue them on? I cannot tell which, looking at the picture.
Regards,
Dave

Cut as a ring then cut and plenty of hand sanding to blend to the required shape
