Arbutus and Paduk Demilune

This piece was a first try at using local hardwood (arbutus) that I cut and kiln dried myself. I’ve always admired the demilune as a style. The wood came from a tree that stands beside my shop. When we built the shop about 1/2 of the tree had to be removed.

It always means more when you cut,mill and use the wood yourself.

Beautiful! I really like the combination of woods you used. My eye is drawn to the pictures hanging in the background though. They look like mother of pearl inlays? My grandmother had some of when I was a kid and I was always fascinated by them.
