In order, the woods are Purpleheart, Cherry, Maple, Mesquite, Brazilian Cherry and Walnut.

I use a vintage 12” bandsaw from Sears with an 1/8” blade. They are sanded to 320 and finished with three coats of lacquer.

I really enjoy doing these and they enable me to meet people all over the world, via the internet.

Scott, it looks like you are really cranking these out. They do look like a project that would be fun to tackle and a great way to use those off cuts that we just can’t bear to part with.

Hi Scott ~ I believe the cherry desk name (photo#2) is from that batch of wood you sent me. They are a great way to showcase a beautiful little chunk that has no other use.

Thanks Mark ~ Mind your digits near the blade. You can watch my YouTube video to see how I do it, or (more fun) just wing it.
