Wow… I love it. I am a person that loves to see the contrasting sap and heart woods used in a project. I think it adds a dramatic effect that would be hard get get any other way….

Very nice piece. I have started to see sapwood furniture for sale around here, but not with quite the same contrast as yours. How do you deal with the the uneven drying between sap and heartwood when you make these pieces? Do you dry the rough lumber yourself? This has been an issue during my time in Cambodia.

Keep it up, I really like what you’re doing.
