Just another couple of projects that I recently finished. A frame made out of rosewood and not sanded too fine as I wanted to keep the appearance of the old timber look.

The other, is a victorian style letter opener that was in the Feb. 2010 creative woodworks and crafts magazine. It is made from the same type of wood sanded to 400 grit and coated with a sealer before putting the oil on.
AND IT WORKS!!!!!
