Kind of a last minute gift idea, my wife wanted something more for a small picture she was giving as a gift. Made from Eucalyptus firewood (from my father in law) and a small band of redwood heart scrap (a tree my brother had taken out of his yard and milled to dimensional lumber). I cut the pieces of euc from a quartered firewood round with a band saw at 3/4” thickish then cut a rabbet in each side to recess the redwood in. I sanded the euc to 600 grit as it was like stone and could hold take the grit (could barely leave a tooth mark). 3 coats of poly wipe-on and 00 wool in between coats.
