I saw this at the lumberyard and liked it. It was both a joy and a nightmare to work with. The wood is very dense and dulled the knives on my planer and jointer. Once it was together it was fun to sculpt and sanded like a dream.
As you can see the wood is two toned. I don’t think it’s sap wood, it’s almost like two completely different woods. While the darker wood is typical of many rosewoods with it’s rich color and smooth finish, the yellow wood reminds me of bamboo for some reason.
I think I will pick up some more of this my next trip to the lumberyard. I think I will have them surface it though. LOL.
They handle and miter keys are made from curly maple and padauk.
Thanks for taking a look.
