    Just really beautiful work Arturo. You are fortunate to have easy access to this wood. We have some nice wood here, but I find that 'exotics' like this wood are something that is lacking in our area. It's nice to see such wood in the hands of a skilled builder.

    thanks Withak ! I believe is more merit for the wood than the builder ! this wood is hard and dense as ebony (sinks in water), zero porosity, a nice soft feel to touch and a unique "spines" pattern, it's a pity it can't be exported as I would like ...
    Cheers

    Here it comes... Wait for it..... GO ARTURO! Geez, you bust them out beatiful! The wood looks to nearly match the band color in some of the video shots. Funny when you were holding that log chunk and pointing, "It come from in here.." Good stuff as always!

    thank you so much friend ! feel honoured with such compliment from a master like you ! I really "carve" as I hardly can lol ! no initial plan just test against my hand while eroding with the monstrous 10000 rpm angle grinder :eek: so hardly I would speak about a "carving style" LOL !
