    Nice . I have a BSA Plumb hatchet on which the original purple handle and the plastic molded in the eye, broke last summer. After 60 years guess the wood was just not up to the pounding. I found a handle when we went to Missouri and just have not gotten around to fitting it.

    Made new handles for my grandfathers old hammers.

    Do not use white . A gray gradient or light gray is better

    Thanks for the comments. Love the way you put the sapwood in the center. Not to reduce the glare you are getting there are several things you can try. 
        1. Try reflected light off the ceiling or a photo reflector.
        2. Try a white gauze or tshirt fabric filter in front of the light.
        3. Reduce the number of lights you are using.
        4. try more overhead lighting but not the full room light.
     
    You might try all or a combination of these to help with the glare which is tough to deal with on glossy subjects. Also seems a little dark under the chair, do you have a lighter background? You are doing good on this setup.

    Great looking piece. Love the curl in that. Now where is the pie? Or is someone else making them?
