That’s some great timber you’ve got there. Finish is just right to show it off to the very best advantage.

Sweet! That cross grained tiger maple is really stunning. What is the base wood? Cherry, Bubinga?

Nice craftsmanship Dusty, with such a fluid grain that maple almost looks like it is moving.
