Material: Hard maple, wenge, lambskin
Finish: Hand rubbed oil
This is the last project I made using wenge. I began to notice that time I made something with wenge I got some sort of infection. Splinters festered within days or I came down with bronchitis. I then learned that wenge is one of the more toxic woods to work with. As beautiful as it is, the risk of a minor infection turning into something more serious was to great. I do have one large board left that I admire every now now and then though.
