Do they consider sapwood to be scrap over there ? I think it adds so much beauty and is an extension of the heartwoods beauty. Nice set of chairs you have made : )

The pattern of sapwood made the chair set really interesting. Really beautiful!

Again some great looking wood. Is this the same wood as Brazillian Rosewood? Or a local species?

Neat design. Are you using screws and plugs or just screws. I can’t tell. What kind of glue if any are you using?

Hi rosewood,

Are the logs we see in the background some raw rosewood perhaps?
