>About 5" in diameter. Tried a new finish on it - the new Zissner French Polish. Comes ready mixed in a can. Applied on the lathe at high speed as with a friction polish, but worked much better than others I've tried. Most of them don't work on things much larger than a pen or a finial, for me anyway. Very easy to build and obtain a gloss finish. Final buffed on wheels.
Ebony collar. Maple burl is really hard to find around here, unlike cherry burl. This little piece set me back $3.
I'm still getting the hang of the collar treatment, its not quite as delicate as I would have liked, but fortunately, it is not yet glued in.
Comments/critiques welcomed. Thanks for looking.
