”LEOPARD HEART” By BazzA.. carved from Brazilian Leopard Wood..
Made for my Better half ! Inspired by the Very Talented “WIZ” Mr Gary Burns of Oregon USA .
Thank you Gary for your kind Permission allowing me to copy a couple of your designs. Not in any way trying to 100% replicate his work, as these are done free hand in typical Bazz style.
This amazing Leopard wood is one inch thick and the hearts stand around 9 inch high.
Sanded Bathed in a Vat of Tung oil and finnished with a little pure beeswax.
Thank you for looking at my projects and please if you have not yet witnessed “WIZ” and his wonderful inspireing Carvings go check him out ! He has a wonderful website- workshop- blog- and a dream location to work from. “LEOPARD HEART” By BazzA.

Just a note on the LEOPARD WOOD :: Expensive timber here in the UK I paid around £50 “GBP” per metre thats about $25 per foot ! if you fancy playing with this lovely timber but no idea where to buy it try E-BAY
I have a supplier here in the UK but I have seen odd planks on E-BAY along with other interesting Hardwoods.
Its a very dense timber and quite tough to work with, but worth all the effort and cost.
Go for it ! BazzA.

Comments: Leopardwood is frequently confused with Lacewood, and is sometimes referred to as such. In its vaguest sense, the term “lacewood” is used to describe any wood that displays figuring that resembles lace, (which would technically include Leopardwood). Attempts to identify a specific board macroscopically may be difficult. Two Australian species, Northern Silky Oak (Cardwellia sublimis), and Southern Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta) can both look very similar, and are sometimes sold as Australian Lacewood.

Leopardwood (Roupala spp.) can usually be separated from most species of Lacewood (Panopsis spp.) based upon its darker color and higher density. Additionally, when comparing the endgrain of these two genera, Leopardwood has wider spaced parenchyma bands: approximately 3-4 per mm versus 5-6 per mm with Lacewood.
