    My 5th homemade is a kind of bat-design.<br>It is very thin and slender one (and tall <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">), and it is still no final polish.<br>It is so thin that it looks like the nail of Batman.... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><br><br>Anyways ...<br>I'm really satisfied with the end result...<br><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=7&u=17137355" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/73/55/bat110.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=8&u=17137355" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/73/55/bat210.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=9&u=17137355" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/73/55/bat310.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=10&u=17137355" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/73/55/bat410.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=11&u=17137355" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/73/55/bat510.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>Hasta la vista!

    Thanks Ryan.<br>We call <i>maçaranduba</i>. Signature <i>Manilkara elata</i>, I think (sorry, I don't know about trees in English so much).<br><br>It's a very large tropical tree (+/- 35 meters), having dark-red wood, as you see; it is <strong>very very hard and resistant</strong> wood. <br>It is a native and tropical Brazilian tree... it seems to me; furthermore, it is endangered here. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br><br>Front and back covering, multiplex, of course.
