Just got this one done for a coworker for her anniversiary. It is thier 5th and we are pretty sure that it is wood for that one. It made mostly out of lacewood for the grain effects, but I did not take into consideration how hard that wood is. This pattern has a lot of very small pieces and I spent most of my time on my hands and knee’s looking for that little piece that I dropped while sanding. I was very glad to get this one finished and no amount of money would talk me into doing another like this. It was made out lacewood, ebony, wenge, and black walnut and it is 13×13x1 in. It has 119 pieces and is very delicate, so hopefully she will be very careful with it. Hope they like it and they enjoy it for a long time to come.

It took about 20 hours to make the pattern and then about 40 working on it. Thanks for your comments

Beautiful work, but I’m not really sure I’d want it hanging on my wall… I’ve been stung by the little version (1”) of those guys on my foot and it hurt like heck.

One of the funnest things about LumberJocks is seeing what people can imagine and then having the skill to build. There is some nice artistry to this piece that you every right to be proud of. Just looking at it makes you smile. Good job.
