I had a piece of figured Pink Ivory that I bandsaw cut for a bookmatch glue up, that was 10 years ago. So I knew when I glued it what I wanted to make so now that I have a small shop in the dining room of my condo (I’m single if you couldn’t guess) I completed my idea from years before. Pink Ivory was interesting to work with, this was made using Japanese saws, chisels and rasps to shape the heart. Then I began refining the shape with files and sandpaper finishing with Abralon 4000 and then applied paste wax and polished.
