Friends son graduated with degree in geology, so I made this CB trying to make it look like something a geologist would see in their discoveries. I bookmatched the hickory, lyptus and paduck. It also has black walnut, hard maple, marblewood and canarywood. I didn’t want to go to wild on the pattern.

When I was working in the Northern Territory I visited a property that sold zebra stone, I bought a few sample pieces to see if I could inlay it into wood just to see the effect.

I bought a stone saw and made a few test cuts but never finished the job your board inspired me to get going again.

Here is some images from the net,

Your friend may be interested in seeing it.
