Here a Lignum Vitae wall hanging piece. I choose some nice figured LV slices and place them in LV slabs… The LV slices had some wormholes and I filled them with Red Coral. All those LV slabs connected by West Indian Satinwood pieces… all pieces highly polished and then waxed. The base is Cuban Mahogany stained Wengue… its finish is acrylic lacquer (satin). Size: 30” X 24. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful wood. Must have dulled some saws on this.

A very innovative kind of work and very absorbing :)
