.  I had planned to add an ebony collar but I only had a small piece of ebony and it split when I was drilling it.

 

In any case, if a piece of fine wood isn't available, wouldn't it be better to use something like a brass washer to delineate the change of wood? I have even used pewter, which is very easy to cast.

 

P.S. When working on the stock of a rifle, I used the black plastic from an oil bottle to make a spacer.

No. I felt like the contrast in the birds eye and the padauk was good on its own.

A contrasting collar is purely a matter of taste to me too.  I've done some with and I've done some without.  It just depends on the stick and possibly the mood I'm in at the moment.
