Thanks to the artists who posted there pics and notes, you’ve inspired me to finally build something I’ve always wanted to tackle. Start with the end in mind is the key to making one of these projects. Made of Walnut,Sycamore, Hard Maple and Spalted Maple for handles. I will be building more of these. Thanks for looking.

From what I can see, you did an excellent job. Nice craftsmanship, nice tight seams on the veneer, nice straight lines. Something to be proud of.

That is great looking. The wood species you chose work together very well.
