I made this piece for my wife. I picked ash, bloodwood, and mesquite. I picked the ash and mesquite because the grains in the wood add so much character to the piece. I picked the bloodwood because of its rich color. I decided to layer the crosses and star instead of doing a flat piece to give it more dimension and stand out.
