Hi Brian,

This is a nice looking centerpiece. What woods and finish did you use?

Those look nice! Been wanting to do a couple of those as a thank-you. What issue of Woodsmith was that in?

I made several of these at Christmas and that turned into 4 more commisions that I sold. For my own sanity and to keep with existing wood stores, I made a few by the WS plan with Maple and Cocobolo, but then made Mahogany and Wenge, and finally, a Quilted Maple and Kingwood piece that I have kept for myself. You can actually see an accidental shot of it in one of my other posted projects. I still have to finish it. Probably will use lacquer again.

Thanks for posting these – I saw them in the magazine and thought about it. Now it’s on my list.
