Another pen, pencil, and letter opener set, along with a business card holder. The card holder idea came from a recent project in Wood magazine. The letter opener and writing tools are of Cherry, with Hut satin & gloss finishes. The business card holder is a mix of Walnut and Oak. The Oak was burned with a torch to highlight the grain. It almost looks like Zebrawood. Finish is just 3 coats of Deft gloss spray can. Thnx for looks and comments, good, bad, ugly. :)

Nice work, I like the idea of burning the oak. I’ll have to try that. I read this artice as well and thought about leaving the marble out as well. Nice work and cool post.
