...for my hunter friends.
The first is from Silver Maple burl with a slate surface over a crystal soundboard. The two-piece striker is Purpleheart and burl.

This one is cherry with a bronze glass surface over a slate soundboard. It got pimped out with a turkey foot sandblasted on the underside of the glass and my buddy's initials blasted into the slate. The top side of the glass is blasted around the edge to hide the glue line. The striker is Purpleheart. The strikers are hollowed at the top to hold a piece of the abrasive pad used to condition the surface.
