Ziricote

Check out this piece of Ziricote I just picked up!
It comes from parts of Mexico and Central America. A very dense wood. But, I'm told that it's relatively easy to work with. And it's next up on the list for shaping.

A closer view below.
There are not many, if any, woods that have such a unique grain feature. I'm really looking forward to boring through this thing making something cool.

So, check back here or visit the etsy site for the final pieces I sculpt. I hope to have some bangles finished by tomorrow.
