I made three of these; one for my wife and one for each daughter. The body is bloodwood strips laminated so that top and bottom are edge grain. Sort of a fancy cutting board. The rest is ebony. The plan came from a old Wood Magazine. It was fun to make and easier than I thought. To be so hard, bloodwood and ebony work very well. They sand easily to my surprise. The finish is home-made beeswax and bol buffed out with a old t-shirt.
