Today's beautiful wood moment is provided by Black and White Ebony (crosscut). It took some trial and error to figure out the best way to work this wood to make sure it be stable enough for use in grips while being crosscut. Now it's no problem and I don't lose sleep over these any more.
Beautiful stuff when cut WITH the grain, the uniqueness of this wood really shines when it's crosscut. People often see faces, animals, etc in the wood. What do YOU see?
Anyway, enjoy the pics.
