I hit the lumber yard today, and came across this piece of cocobolo. I paid a pretty penny for it, but I had to have it. I’m thinking of resawing it into a veneer and using it for a humidor.

-- Why waste the money buying it, when I can spend twice as much on new tools, a week online researching new techniques, and a month building it.

Pretty stuff, you should try bookmatching it with that sapwood.

Just beautiful, hope it’s stable enough to resaw and get as much of the surface figure into the project.
