. 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.
