Very nice, Skip. I don't think I've ever had something ebony turn out--it always splits on me. I'm impressed.

It is tough no doubt... I had the insert made out of Ebony too... It lasted until the final sanding was almost done.. Yep it split... I'm going to try it again though I'm always asking for trouble haha....

Very nice turning and for a worthy cause. thumbup.gif How did you get the logo on the stacker? Decal?

Hair stackers are usually made from brass and aluminum to prevent static electricity which can be a pain when working with animal hair. We have a lot of static during the winter here in SE Tennessee. Do your wood and antler stackers have any problems with static?
