Thanks to the prior posts on Lumberjocks, I reproduced this great little project.

I have a friend from Australia, Mr. Tim Rose, who is a fine carpenter from Perth. On a visit this Fall, he brought me some short pieces of Jarrah, a wood native to his Southwest Australia. I used the Jarrah and Pennsylvania Cherry, (my favorite native hardwood) to produce this version.

I coated the wood with three coats of blond shellac followed by two coats of polyurethane.

Now I have one project to show my TWO favorite hardwoods.
