    African blackwood

    Been digging in my stash the timber pics sliced branch wood from Africa about 15 yrs ago. I had an African friend who traded his Village members goods includingCarved animals etc,he arranged for a few pieces of this timber untouched beside harvesting just for me.

    Peter.

    Another cracker Peter, love the facets. They look immaculate. I’m going to try this one day and will be delighted if I can get anywhere close to what you’ve done here.
    Cheers,
    Ash

    Stunning as usual Peter.

    You are the master of the hexagonal pens, impeccable finish as well..

    Nice bit of history with the woods as well.
