Another growth ruler finished, had a request for a ruler with a irish tree of life, and if possible a phoenix and griffin added since the boys who this ruler is for is named Phoenix and Griffin. Found a gorgeous pomele sapele and marbled walnut boards, wanted to save the sapele but it was the perfect match up with the walnut and if I saved it…. I probably would have never used it (btw i used the scraps of that board to make a few pens, best looking pens ever, if you find a board like that, buy it). Carved the top and numbers out of the walnut and let the sapele speak for its self. Inlayed the carving into the top placing an acrylic mirror behind it. One of my favorite projects yet.

Wow! Just incredible! Also way better than the old yardsticks that I used as a kid.
