Bottom is Bloodwood, 3 leather spacers, top is Peruvian Mahogany. Gotta admit I'm a little disappointed in this one. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't flush, I usually never have a problem with that.

I do really like the imperfection in the Bloodwood though. It's a natural crack but it looks so cool with the discoloration. I'm debating on whether to sell it or not, I hate that it's not flush but I also hate to waste these two cool pieces of wood.

Nice work!!!! I like the imperfectly perfect. The natural crack adds to the appeal of it as far as I can see.

I like the natural crack too! It came with the wood and I think it adds a lot of character. Of course, pictures never give the perfect view. In person, it looks wicked cool with the crack.

I enjoy the varying textures you have going on there. Very 'one of a kind'!

I actually fit the stock into my drill press and us it as a vertical lathe. I shape them with files and sand paper. I am just using cheaper hardwoods, bone, horn, and leather for now until I get a better feel for how I need to approach it. Then I will start to use more exotic woods.

That's awesome because I use my drill press too. Whatever works, right? Smile

Imperfections have character. Some of the best things in life have a crack 5)  IE: The Libery Bell. cheers

I employ a bit of Wabi-Sabi philosophy in my life, and became enamoured with the art of Kintsugi. Though I'm not suggesting you fill the crack with gold, pewter might look pretty cool. Or copper.

So the crack, it works on so many levels!
