    Hard Maple, and burnt on the lathe, then the connecting lines were burnt with wood burner thing.

    I hope she likes it!

    Looks great, Stu. I keep meaning to try some bracelets. Looks like you have the process down pat. Should be well received!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Cool stuff, Stu. What did you use to color the red and green squares?

    Thanks guys!

    Vaughn, I used some markers they have here, I've never seen them outside of Japan, but they are a water pigment paint marker, not an alcohol marker. When Eli Avisera was last here, I showed them to him and he was very interested in them, so I gave him the 8 color set I had, I replaced that with a 15 color set

    They are called "Posca"

    They work well!
