This is a project that made for my son’s girlfriend for valentines day. It was a fun one to make because I could use my imagination a little. The piece was made out of wenge, yellow heart, cherry, aspen, ebony, mohogany, and walnut.

Thanks for looking.

Tiger, tiger
Burning bright
In the forests of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful butterfly
