These are made out of myrtle and one from cherry.
I barely got these finished Christmas morning for my best friend’s five kids (age 8-12) (the cherry one was for their mom). Unfortunately, two of the myrtle did not make it through the evening. While the highly figured wood looked really great, it is just a crack waiting to happen when kids smack them against each other, sit on them, step on them, etc.
I do not have a lathe, so I was winging it with bandsaw, my new PC disc/belt sander (yes, this project was an excuse to buy a new tool!) and hand tools.
