I agree. The African Blackwood and Spalted Tamarind seem to match up nicely. Of course Dan has a hand in that with his incredible eye for detail.Picking the look from the word was both easy and hard. I tend towards lighter and warmer wood colors but the African Blackwood really seemed to jump out and it turned out so amazing. I bet yours will be stunning. I happened to like the more subtle textures in the darker wood for the main body. Enjoy. I really enjoy seeing all the choices people made. It’s so amazing what two wood varieties produce in terms of visual impact. A lot of it is the craftsman that turns the wood blocks into art sculptures!!!!
Here's a shot of mine from a couple months ago You have to use your imagination about the final curvatures and polishing though. Hopefully we'll see those details soon!!
