    Cut this Angel the other evening. Cut from 3/4" spalted maple (Very Hard!!) I have it in a pine frame I made up in the pic, but I havent decided as of yet how I am going to finish it - Paint it. The pattern came from the Scrollsaw Portriats Book.

        +1 to what oily said. Yes some wood needs painting but not pretty wood like you have there.

              +1 for not painting. Nice job on the cutting. A couple coats of poly or something along those lines would show off the wood.

                Paint is for house walls and children toys, not excuisite art like your. Good job.

                      I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                      If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                      The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                      I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
