    It was time to finish this one...

    What I am going to show to you is called "Glazed gold", because it is made from a black locust fork and laminated with padauk and wenge (exotic wood postcards from Japan, thanks to Dax). So the polished padauk looks like a glaze on the black locust base (golden).

    Made from a natural fork, planed down to 2cm, laminated wth padauk and wenge, sanded to 1200grit, finished with Danish oil and polished with beeswax and carnauba wax wood polish.


    I will let the photos do the rest of the talk!

    Thank you very much Dax. Your wooden postcards are really amazing, I loved the smell of padauk when shaping it.


    Thank you Drew!
