  11. Intarsia Bearded Dragon Wall Hanging

    This one took awhile to finish and has 237 different pieces. I tried to take some pictures to show the depth of this piece because I used a lot of shims and used wood from 2 inches down to 1/2. The face looks blue, but it is really wenge and it is the way the light hit it for the picture. No...

  19. Cocobolo Wood Pendant

    I was going to make a bunch of these and sell them on my site, but the cost/time/profit margins were just not there. This took about 45 minutes to make, and I think I could maybe get 40 bucks for it with a leather case. The corners are a bit harsh against your skin when you wear it, and it's...
