    My wife named this one. It's made from Maple Burl and the racing stripe is a piece of construction paper micarta I had left over from another build. Laminated with G-Flex, sanded to 9 microns and finished with Danish Oil.
    Thanks for looking! DSC08273.JPG DSC08274.JPG DSC08275.JPG DSC08277.JPG DSC08278.JPG

    That's what your last one was wasn't it? I was thinking when you posted it that we were thinking along the same lines.

    Great job as usual. I tried to replicate your paper towel background. But I utterly failed

    That's stunning nice - you do amazing work, Sir. And I like the cool way she poses together with the marbles.
    btw, where do you get your micarta from? that's awsome stuff.

    Absolutely beautiful, that successful combination of colors and materials, labor and photography!!!
    An absolute 10, worthy of the banner by own merit
