Just a simple project to keep my hands dirty.

This is made from Bloodwood with white oak accents. I used the cutoff from the main board for the pen and letter opener blanks and laminated the rest together with some white oak to make the blank for the magnetic paper clip holder and pen well. CA glue finish on the pen/opener and semi-gloss poly on the board. Nothing fancy, but fun. Found out I am allergic to bloodwood….I’m still itching.

The white oak really is a nice combination with the bloodwood. Very nice. I’ve never had a problem working with bloodwood, but found out my system does not react well to Wenge. I did a number of projects with wenge and didn’t think my sinusus would ever clear up. It’s funny how we react to different woods. Great project!

I really like how this comes as a set – it all goes together so well. Nice project!
