    Black Sycamore

    I thought I would take a gamble and have some of the Sycamore dyed black.
    This is the first one I cleaned up. Every piece will look different but I am encouraged so far.
    Good? Bad?
    I like it. But I would like to hear what you guys think.
    Saturday I will do a drawing and give this piece away.

    I like it... Maybe not enough for a full wa handle but I think as scales on a western with nice pins and an offsetting liner they would look great!

    +1 For a wa, its lost too much of what that particular wood has to offer, With pins and spacers/liners it wold be nice.

    I could see this making some really cool handles.

    I think it is awesome! I am appreciating the dark woods more and more lately. It almost reminds me of a surface charred curly maple or koa.
