My local QA guys asked me to do them a favor and this is what I gave ‘em. It was for a great leader, so I was OK with donating my time free of charge. Used walnut for the border, cherry for the tail flash, birch and bloodwood for the rays of sun, zebrawood and maple for the mounain.

I wasn’t happy that my Mt. Fuji shape wasn’t perfect, but oh well it turned out great.

Sealed with Shellac and sprayed with Lacquer.

Used baby oil and rottenstone to give it a glass finish.

Materials cost me $114.

Exceptionally detailed work Jase,

Only one photo? No doubt five spaces left for some more of the construction process to be added later along with the presentation, hint hint !
