Great job! I am going to try to revive a few of my wood working skills and make a stove cover. I remember using padouk in a chess board that I made in high school. Gotta love those exotic woods!

Bulbinga?
I was wondering about the spelling, and knew a long time friend spelled the way I did. I won't forget now.

We also enjoyed that , Silver Sage especially . The other group - with the Eriksons and Jones went to another Winery that was set up like a western saloon , apparently very fun . Maybe next year .

Well done on the woodworking. 8)

Word of warning for anyone thinking of working with some of these woods, though. Some exotics are quite nasty on the sinuses, so make sure you have good ventilation.

I built some wall sconces out of padauk several years ago. I found it fairly irritating, but one of my friends came over for dinner a few days later and had a bad reaction, even without going into my work shop. Fair enough, a bit of sensitivity there. The amazing bit was that she had the same reaction several months later, just after I gave the shop a thorough cleaning, including wiping dust down from places that hadn't been dusted since before I did the padauk project..

Yeah, lots of caustic irritating woods out there. Recently, on a flooring install on a project my company was doing, we used massaranduba (Brazilian Redwood). Holy crap was that stuff irritating, and I don't have sensitive skin. My guys had to wear goggles, gloves and masks. I had a small scrape on my arm and did it ever sting when I got dust on it. When sanding for finishing, we ventilated well and wore full disposable coveralls and respirators. The floor sure did look great though.

Pretty good, but at 3/4" think, it might be heavy. After a few months now, we are still loving our cork floor.

That word of warning is important and worthwhile advice , as Wolf is a BMT survivor he does use a respirator and coverall for most parts of his woodworking .
That cork floor Jim Bennett installed in his19 is beautifully installed and is very attractive , if our floor weren't so new ........
