I love rosewood. Have you ever made any out of walnut or is the grain to tight to make it strong for this application?

Absolutely beautiful. Where did you score the rosewood? It is amazing.

I just sent out a walnut tote. Here is another I happen to have a picture of.
Shane, I bought a piece of rosewood from the local lumber yard. I bought a 3’ piece thinking it would last a while, but I’ve already made a bunch of these and its just about gone.

i probably should update this but the only real difference is I have made a wooden template instead of using the paper ones.

and one more thing, I’ve got 2 broken bases. One I show in the blog, the second is cut off right in front of the riser so its easy to get the length exact. I’ll update the blog as soon as I remember to take some pictures.
