    Some time ago I commented that I took a couple of small cuts of black guayacan (lignum vitae) and asked for suggestions on what to do with them. One of them was to make a Conus. That seemed an interesting project.
    Thanks to Alvaro for sharing the template.
    Use one of the cuts of guayacan, scraps of ciricote wood and yellow fiberglass spacer.
    It's not perfect but I put my best effort.

    He does amazing work, @Cass.

    I am rebanding this as we speak. An excellent weight and fine craftsmanship.
