    Beautiful work! My one question is with the one banded up, is there a specific reason why you have one side with the band fold at the fork facing in and the other facing out?

    wow. the second is very interesting and looks almost like an Aligator. But I loooove the third black one ! What is it? Wood? Ebony? I love it. Too bad I cant get any ebony here or other exotic wood

    The black one is birch, dyed it black. Spacers are in the national colours.
