amber bamboo remnants glued up into a block. 3 sides of outside shape is cut out on the bandsaw. Torn flap is carved using a proxxon I borrowed from my boss. The interior is bored with a forstner bit then carved out with a proxxon, die grinder, and chisels. Stained then coated with lacquer and buffed out. One of my biggest peeves about bamboo is the glue lines. You cannot tame them. So it really limits your design capability. I can see why most of the work done in bamboo is contemporary. Keep it simple and stress free. LOL

Very cool, Keith. It looks very sexual to me. Maybe my mind is just in the gutter. :-)
