Default Black Palm Scales

Black Palm Scales on Maple by Kenneth Wines that I turned and finished with 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Satin Polyurethane using my Dipping Method to get that wood feel.
I find using a Gloss finish on wood makes it look and feel too much like the plastic look that you get with a CA finish.
Dressed up on a Black Titanium / Platinum Elegant Beauty Sierra frame.

Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

STUNNING! Iím extremely impressed one could cut black palm so precisely, even with a laser, and not have cracked pieces. Very well done.
