I have been adding woods to my arsenal.
Pic #1 – Madrone Burl ~ Just received today. Smells like cotton candy (to me) when cutting it. Beautiful, cloudlike grain.
Pic #2 – Pau Amarello (Yellowheart) with an inlaid Paduak heart. Experimenting…
Pic #3 – Purpleheart and Mesquite. The purpleheart color is wonderful though the grain is a bit boring. Mesquite, I love to work with and enjoy putting the finish on.
Pic #4 – Cocobolo. I got this last week and am enamored with the richness of this rosewood. My newest favorite.
Pic #5 – Walnut and Zebrawood. The customer suggested the combo and I was a bit apprehensive, but it work out pretty well. This is one of my SweetHeart Keychains. The names are on both sides of the keychain.
Pic #6 – Cumaru (Brazilian teak). This wood was in a “Keychain for Cut-offs” swap I did last November. Nice wood to work and finishes well. HARD
These are all cut freehand on a bandsaw. No computer “bytes” are harmed in the production of my keychains.
Thank you for looking.
