This Hydrostone Sandzen tile was made from a commissioned wood carving from our Buddy Tuanie. Original carving(not shown)” is Asian mahogany. Hard,dense crisp wood.Dark red.

I made a rubber concrete mold from it and this is the sixth tile from that mold. ...

Iron oxide finish is made from products available from Sculpt Nouveau.

The frame is made from a chunk of stripe grained sapele mahogany. A little more dense and heavier then Honduran, but a delight to work with. Machines and finishes easily.

Finish is my traditional dark oak dye stain, MinWax jazz’d up mahogany oil stain and Seedlac shellac.
still needs a good coat of wax,...this will do it for today >grin<
