I’m making a king bed out of Peroba rosa and thought that the offcuts would be interesting as little candle dishes for Christmas. Peroba rosa (or, at least the stock that I have) has this incredible interlocking grain that makes it a bear to work with, especially in little pieces like this (the dish is roughly 4 inches square). As a result, after the chisel work there was a ton of sanding to get a decent surface, after which I sprayed on a number of layers of clear enamel. Sorry about the quality of the picture.
