Amazing detail work, Mark--can't believe the precision you can achieve with your sliding saw setup.

Can't wait to see it in person!

Thanks Nemoman! Glad you are coming to the show!

Meanwhile I have also been working on the back. This is pommele figured Sapele with the blue tinted spalting:



Here I am gluing on the center graft which I used the multi color floatwood Sitka for:





It makes a nice frame for my Sapele burl branded logo chip:



They make a wonderful couple:



Thanks for viewing!
Mark

Those woods are incredible together--look at that bearclaw!

The blues in those two different species of wood are amazingly similar, what a match. I agree with Mr. Nemoman, that bear claw is amazing.

I do agree they go wonderfully in the Red, White and Blue colors of an old battle flag. Old Glory.

When I first saw some billets of that fantastic pommel figured Sapele with the Blue color I knew I had to match it with the Blue Sitka Floatwood that I was buying about the same time. Then a few sets of it with bear claw figure became available which was just the icing on the cake!
