This display rack is Cherry and Box Elder and it has a tiger eye cabochon in the top. It is finished with Deft Clear Gloss Lacquer.
I needed more display space for my bracelets for a show on Saturday so I went hunting for stock to make into one. I found this cherry log with a split all the way to the center and thought, how can work that crack into the design.I split it on the band saw into 3 pieces and added some box elder for contrast. I thought the cherry will darken so it better be a light colored wood. The pegs are also made from cherry from the other half of the log. It split a little more after I turned it. That wood was only 8% and still cracking. It was cut in 2008..I hope it is done now!!
