Great job Bob. Those scales look like birds eye maple. I stabilized some with Cactus Juice with some green alumilite dye in it and they came out just like those.
Thank jeepman3366, I appreciate it.
Mike the scales some kind of Burl. I got the file and wood from my customer. I like to do double and triple dying using alumilite. I just ruin too much cactus juice that way. I go through enough of it as it is and you it's not cheap.
