    Recently completed, the base is wane/natural edge bubinga, carcass is figured bubinga, top is birds eye maple and the turned handle and feet are Macassar ebony.

    Size is roughly 7" H x 7" W x 16" L.













    Cheers, Don

    Nice work, Don, but I am afraid I am not a big fan of bubinga. Bit too busy for my taste.

    Thanks Daniel !

    The color and figure of Bubinga definitely isn't for everyone. I've had this board in stock for a number of years before I decided to use it.

    Originally I had planned to build a dresser for myself with it and I'm still procrastinating

    Cheers, Don

    Beautiful work - Is it strictly ornamental or does it have a purpose/use?

    Thank you Monty,

    It is simply a very expensive place for a client to store whatever they desire

    Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?


    Got to hand it to you, Don. You really have a fine touch and feel for wood. Very creative.

    Thank you Daniel !

    One does pick up a trick or two over the years, he, he..

    As to putting things off, hmm, who knows how much time we have left ?

    On the other hand, I'd hate to lose my procrastinator status
