This is laminated walnut and purple heart with epoxy laced with cumin. I mixed cumin with the epoxy to give it some grain and color. I was trying to make it look like yellow heart. I need to get a press so I can get even pressure without applying so much pressure all the epoxy squeezes out. I did not care for the purple heart for turning. It is beautiful timber, but it just wants to turn to dust while turning. It measures 4.25” tall by 8.25” wide and is finished with a wipe-on poly.
