My wife is about to graduate surgery residency (end of may, so I have a little time) and I want to make her a gift. I seem to be on a box kick so I’m betting that’s what she’ll end up with. Maybe a case for her loupes.
Anyway… she loves the color Lavender (but hates pink, go figure) and I have this whim to try my hand at some crushed stone inlay. I ordered some beads to crush:
Purple-heart being the obvious choice to combine with this, but I’d like some more contrast than that and something with some actual figure or interesting grain pattern would be nice.
So what crazy exotic wood do you think would go well with these?
