Where nature and art meet!


The Letter Openers were made of various sandwiches of exotic hardwoods from around the world.  The strips of wood are glued by using extreme force until the glue dries.  From that point the sanding and shaping is done.  Several coats of Deft were used to bring out the beauty of the dense hardwoods. The display base was made of poplar with strips of rosewood.
