Messing around *PIC*

>Threw this absolutely featureless little maple scrap at the trash bin twice and it refused to go in, so I decided to turn it and try dying it. I think I got my dye mixture too strong, because it's more of an Oxblood than a Red. Also experimented some more with building a high gloss with an oil/varnish finsh. I am not unhappy with the results as it is, but I don't know if I should try buffing it, just use a little Renaissance Wax on it or just leave it alone. Also found that it is very difficult to photograph a high gloss piece! 2"x2 1/2"
