Thanks! Pottz, I have such a love hate with padauk. I love the freshly worked color, but you're right, it doesn't last. There are ways to make it last longer, but it's just delaying the inevitable. I chose this color combo partly because the colors are slightly going in different directions - the walnut lightens and turns honey brown, the padauk darkens and turns gray brown, and the zebrawood deepens even if it loses some contrast.

Snow on the ground is the best time to work in the shop!

I really like that color combo, nice work Chuk!

The large legs give it a good stance and interesting shadow lines.

I'll have to consider which wood will hold the color, the traditional walnut/cherry or maybe some jatoba.

I have the same love-hate with padauk. Nonetheless that is a beautiful box. Incredible work.
