Inspired by WoodyTurner's wire wool and vinegar post I went out and had a go myself. This technique is amazing and I am pretty sure I'm going to make a whole black series of things now, cheers Woody :)

a good job, what kind of wood did you use?
It's oak as this is what Woody had used in conjunction with the vinegar and wire wool, although apparently the technique will work with any wood with high tannin levels (whatever they may be).

Thanks so much for the kind words. I've done a lot of turning in the last week and im really enjoying finding what works. This vinegar method is great fun and I can't wait to get a load more oak blaks :D

What is the finish after the vinegar treatment?
My finish of choice... Briwax. I just love the shine it gives. I need to experiment with other finishes really but I find this or tung oil suit most of my needs.
