My wife wanted a board with Texas and a Heart for Corpus Christi. The board is made from Walnut, Mahogany, Beach. The Texas inlay is made with Purple Heart, and Maple, the Heart is Padauk. I used Quarter Sawn White Oak for the Light House and Mermaid. The Palm trees are Purple Heart. I wish I’d used a darker wood for the Mermaid and the Light House. We’ll see if any sell at the Market on Thursday.
