I am not sure what type of wood the lighter color is. It seems like some type of Maple. This was part of a table that I found on the side of the road. It was one of those mass produced jobbies and was painted! YUCK!!!!!! ( No paint should ever touch a nice wood like that) Made in Thailand I believe. If anyone can name that wood for me I would totally appreciate it. I thought of the design as I was going. I pictured it as a nut bowl. If you can see it there is a little lip on the top edge. The shells can go there instead of back in the bowl or into another. The dark ring is Mahogany.
I am in a unique position. I have a free shop, cheap rent and a really cool landlord. I keep going into debt but I am doing what I love. On a daily basis I am coming up with designs I want to build. Making trips to the Lumber Yard and getting a nice hunk of a classy looking piece of wood is fine but , to me where it is at is finding something on the side of the road and turning it into 20 different things. Lately I have done my version of ” Pay it forward ”. When I find wood on the side of the road I remember the house I got it from and make them a bowl or something out of it. I think it’s a nice thank you for the contribution. Kinda like a Tax rebate!!!!!!
