It’s awesome. A great job. Looks almost like a spalted maple but it must not be if it is that hard.

To me it looks like spalted oak. Regardless what it was in the beginning, the end result is incredible.

Góód job!!

I like it! Very creative.

If you use the new carbide “Kutzall Carving Burrs” in your dremel they are exceptional for hard material.

“Covered with hundreds of extremely sharp carbide teeth, these aggressive carving burrs remove stock quickly and stay sharp 7 to 10 times longer than HSS burrs. They are not prone to loading. When working with pine (which will load any burr), clean them with solvent or burn out the wood and gum with a gas torch; the heat won’t harm the teeth.”

I carve quite a bit and when I found these they blew me away.

Anyhow great job!
