Spurred by the well-intentioned suggestions of some here I got a new
difital camera and took new photos of my humble efforts. I'd
appreciate any comments/observations/etc. So far I have used oak,
utili, purpleheart, chestnut, pine, walnut, yew and sycamore to make
them. And I have a nice piece of wenge in the corner but I'm just
waiting for inspiration!
