    Hello! New member here from qld Australia and thought I'd start with a boardcut I recently made. There were a few things I did not like about the final product, such as the tear out, off center lanyard hole and flawed finish but these are due to my own impatience. The dark wood is iron bark with acacia arms. The black spacer is a form of micarta I guess, just something I experimented with. I really like the ironbark in this project, well work the difficulty of working. There are also a few naturals in the pipe works drying as I post. The design is that of the YouTube user mxred91 modified slightly, the man is a wonder!

    EDIT: the pictures have now uploaded, not used to posting from an iphone.

    Excellent work! Those two woods compliment each other very well! Looking forward to see what else you come up with soon.
    Here is a secret: don't tell people they are flaws! You should say that you intentionally offset the lanyard hole for better balance and ergonomic support:D
