i like it:2tsup:. you got some nice colouring out of the purple heart. i do however think that the purpleheart in the bottom is a bit to big looking from the top but it seems just right looking at the angle ( pic 2 ) :)

Nice work. Good shape and use of colour. I think I would have used just a little less PH.:):):)

Excellent work BB. In fact I think you must have found the same pattern I did to have a go at your first segmented piece. Here's a pic of mine:


A little more subtle in contrasting timbers than yours, but exactly the same setout. Fascinating stuff, isn't it? Not attempting to hijack your thread, but the my post on this piece is here, just to give you a bit of background:


By the way, where did you get those exotic timbers you have used? I'm on the hunt for some uniquely different sticks at the moment. Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to your next piece, maybe this time with some WIP.

Regards. Wayne
