Great choice of woods. Did you find it hard to keep the padouk dust off the other woods when sanding?

This is much better. The oiling really accentuates the wood, especially the walnut.

Thanks for the post.

WOW! seeing work like this really makes me see that I have years to go and many skills yet to learn. Ever see the Homer Simpson spice rack…...that’s my level right now !


-- It seem's I just make scrap wood and saw dust most of the time !
