Default Re: Show your wood

Posted elsewhere too, but it belongs here :) 13" x 4". This one's going to a special customer in the USA. Bubinga stave with maple highlights, bubinga segmented hoops. The shell bubinga and the hoop bubinga are taken from the same board. The shell is taken from the inner heartwood, so it's dense. The hoops are taken from the outer heartwood (not sapwood) so they're less dense. This was deliberate to take some mass out of the hoops. Hard wax finished & buffed.
