I thought this wood combination was worth showing off. The dense type of Lacewood and some heavy figure Birdseye Maple. Mineral Oil and Wax for a finish. 11’ x 18” x 3/4” I made a few of these recently for summer shows, but these looked special- to me!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Great design and look.

If I saw it for sale I would probably buy one,
even though I could make it.

They look great, and if a person buys one, they would almost need the mirror image one just because.
Thank you for sharing.
