In the meantime added most of my stock to my shop.
These are the last thing to g int. It's a pair of 12 inch candlesticks made of oak. The wood has been textured with a high speed wire brush which brings out the grain by removing the softer wood in it. It was them ebonised and lime waxed giving it an almost blue effect. You can spend a lot of money on specialised tools for texturing but sometimes you can get wonderful effects quite simply by using things that you have around the workshop.
