My neighbor asked for a business card holder out of “cool” wood. Apparently there is quite the competition at her work to have the best holder. She’s a big fan of football and grew up watching Peyton in her home state of Tennessee and she went to school with Eli at Ole’ Miss.
Turned from spalted maple. Finished with clear shellac followed by a few buffed out coats of wax.
Thanks for looking, & Enjoy!
Lesson Learned: I was surprised this highly of figured wood turned so well. I was very worried this would break apart, but it held together extremely well without adding a bunch of CA glue.
