I have never seen Cheetah wood around these parts, but I was very lucky to come upon some Elephant wood. I made a trunk out of it.

I think it’s actually Leopardwood : ) Your “wood” looks like an aerial view of a Gummy Bear Convention.

I think it’s actually Leopardwood : ) I googled “cheetahwood” and it led me to an unhappy forum regarding Tiger Woods !!

Is making a trunk out of elephant wood a pun or what. Looks like cheetah would make a good inlay, or making pens.

C’mon guys. You can see it’s two boards edge joined with the pattern overlapping. He’s pulling our legs.

IMHO I think its spoof also. The two boards are joined at the center yet the pattern is perfect along this joint. In my years of finish this can be accomplished one of two ways.
1. A chemical reaction with A new finish overlaying an existing finish.
2. Had some kind of paper pattern and used spray stain.
I dont think I ever even heard of cheetah or leapord wood before. Sounds like someone needs a new set of muffler bearings. along side thier order of headlight fluid!
Prove me wrong but I think it’s someone pulling our arm and leg! You did get me to come look though. I guess you did get that much out of me.

Okay, Ladies and Gents… Time for me to come a little clean…
Only a little…
There is NO paint or stain involved in this wood’s appearance…
There is NO paper pattern involved…
There is NO chemical reaction involved, though that’s not too far-fetched…
tom1 did get the maple part right, though…
I’ll come completely clean once it’s put into it’s final form – some time this week.

On edge the spots don’t carry through, must be printed on with something
