This is my entry for the winter woodworking contest. I was trying to think of something to give to my wife, and do something I havent attempted before. I steam bent the wood then did a Abalone inlay, which i think turned out pretty good.
The picture is of the path we take when we are traveling from where we live now, to where she grew up (9 hours away). I did a elevation profile of the route to get an idea for the inlay.
I am not sure of the wood, I was told ribbon mahogany, but I have heard other opinions on it. It is finished with shellac and wax.
