THAT is making wood look like it was meant to be. You certainly know how to find the pen in the wood!

BEAUTIFUL!

Great job.

Tres Jolie. Love the lignum vitae. Did you put a finish on them? I love the way they look.

Thanks for the kind words.

No finish, Brotherdale. The woods are hard enough to get a high sheen just by polishing. I sometimes do a CA finish on kingwood, but I rather feel the bare wood under the skin...

All Very nice. The lignum vitae is my favorite. Has a classy simplicity to it.
