When I retired from the Navy CINCHOUSE (the wife) got a certificate of appreciation.
I finally got around to making a frame for her to hang it.
When I split the wood on the tablesaw the blade was starting to dull and it kept smoking.
When I opened it up and Deb saw the tool burns she said not to take them off, she liked the way it looked.
So here it is.

The wood is Indian Dontknow.
Finish is boiled linseed oil.

Thanks Roger.
The grain is pretty figured, the wood looked like it was going to be spalted but instead of the typical spalting lines the discoloration was much more diffuse.
I wish I knew what all the wood is.
Thanks for the miter comment, I cut them on my Hitachi 12” miter saw…it cut perfect miters right out of the box.
I don’t think I’m too new at the retired business, I pulled the plug February of 2011.
