Spring Lotus is a sea shell from Morroco that was cut and put into 2 part expoxy. Fall side is copper over copper with leafs between. The copper has acid patina and transtint dye in shellac over the top of all. Just a great day in the shop. Finished this and the pens, bracelets and the seam rippers. Have 3 more pieces ready for finish.

Not to be a party pooper, but where’s the wood?
I thought this was Lumberjocks not Seashelljocks.
Can somebody help me out – I’m confused?

Uncle Stumpy just to help you out that is a very expensive piece of mesquite burl. Yes the mesquite was dyed and it has two seasons. But not everyone gets it.
