Last time it was Rosewood and Zelkova, this time we are in Parisanda and Kaede. I tried to make it as similar as possible to make it.
Approximately 70 sheets which bonded parisanda of about 2 mm thick and maple of about 0.5 mm thick were carefully combined and made. By combining black and white plates, it became a pattern like a fish scale. The finish is Tanink wax. Since it is the natural color of the tree, there is no worry about discoloration.
It is necessary to make this design for each one rather than cutting out from a large blank (the original mass). Therefore, it takes a lot of time and effort to make a blank before shaving, so I think that there are not many people doing it.
How about a collection or a slightly different gift?
