Long ago I got a a few small planks of Palisander (Dalbergia barroni most likely), including one with volcanoes. Having seasoned them for a good many years, I cut some recently, with a good deal of trepidation to start. This is the volcano plank:
Opposite approach, ebony instead of maple, with chalk to simulate pale stripes between the different woods:
What about a single volcano surrounded by darker palisander from a different tree?
And tie-dye! Amazing “tiger” myrtle from the same tree as the end graft in the previous post, with the darker (volcano-free) palisander:
A different pair of volcanoes–though more like Belknap crater to the previous North Sister–and how about blackwood with a simulated sapwood stripe? You can see actual sapwood at lower left center.
From my lethal wood collection, wenge, savage with burrowing splinters.
