4 Stars Other Uses

I've used these before as railing post-top ornaments. They produce a fine decoration in that mode, as shown in the picture rather than as a bun foot. This time, to save cost, I opted for the poplar rather than maple and as these railings were not really close to the other rails (this is in a small concert hall) the difference didn't matter. A few had some fairly dark grey areas as poplar tends to have, so were not as nice as t he maple, but in this location that didn't matter.
