This is a piece of wood that was left for the fire. I saw too much potential, and decided someone else might like it as well. The spilt cannot grow, as Ive inlaid Walnut teeth that are 1/4 of a inch thick, as well as epoxy mixed in with Walnut dust. This piece is machined to hang on a wall with the two hanging screw holes on the back. The finish is Tung oil.

5/8×12x21

Curly Maple-N.America
Walnut-N.America

I second that thought:

Very nice job on the unique shaped inlays.

Glad some of us have an artistic eye.
I could make the inlays but never come up with the design.
Nice work.

There are those outside the woodworking community who say woodworking does not create works of art. Your piece proves them totally wrong! Your eye for the artistic in this piece is right on!
