For size reference, the long axis is 9 1/4 inches, the short axis is 6 1/4 inches. The gold dice are 12 mm and the blue dice are 19 mm.

Octagonal Dice Tray - Black Poisonwood, or Chechen, with Green Felt




This is another dice tray, this time the standard 3" side, 6 1/4" diameter, octagonal dice tray. They're available on Etsy.

This, like the first one I ever made, is made from black poisonwood, which is also known as chechen or Caribbean rosewood, that is finished with Formby Tung Oil and given a kelly green felt lining.

"Shangrila" Series #4

 

So I started a series of pens made from the aromatic cedar we harvested from my in-laws' property.

Similarly to the first two, this is an aromatic cedar blank, twist pen kit, sanded to 1500 grit, finished with 6 coats of CA, and buffed out. The kit is "satin chrome/chrome" trim, twists to extend the tip, and is a black ball-point pen.




This is the third in the series, I'm happy to make custom pens for you, just let me know, and I have a few already made and listed on Etsy.

18" Danggai Magnetic Knife Strip


Another knife strip out the door, this one to D.C. This is made from danggai (kingiodendron). I took a couple pictures to try to highlight the spectacular wavy, complex, grain in this rare wood.

I have a limited supply of danggai left, but knife strips are available for purchase on Etsy

Black Stain Elongated Tray with Purple Felt


Another elongated dice tray out the door. This one got a healthy dose of General Finishes Black Gel Stain and purple felt. The finish is Formby's Tung Oil. I, humbly, think it turned out great. The customer had a great eye for combining the dark colors of black and purple.

For size reference, the long axis is 9 1/4 inches, the short axis is 6 1/4 inches. The gold dice are 12 mm and the blue dice are 19 mm.

Other color combinations are visible on the gallery post. And, of course, they are available for purchase on Etsy.
