Where "studio" = "cardboard box, paper and a desk lamp"
Shooting product shots for upcoming project. Tethered shooting makes life a lot easier, but sadly my camera is a bit too old to let me do live views. Maybe if it goes well I'll be able to afford a less vintage Nikon..

Why yes that is a sliver of purpleheart atop an even slimmer wedge of blackwood, sandwiched in what I think is white oak. Ballpoint pen tip for scale.
Unfinished as yet because the purpleheart has been worked so it needs 24 hours to go more purple. Will probably have a gentle clear lacquer, finished to satin or thereabouts.

2TB Buffalo NAS rehomed inside a classic Sony tape deck. The NAS leds are wired to the VU meters, and are also visible as blue glints underneath the lovely fat switches. Tape deck is non-functional, but all the buttons and switches still clunk around pleasingly.
Light pull what I made from padouk and African blackwood. I am covered in orange sawdust.

So the vet said she shouldn't be allowed to jump too much until her stitches were out. I thought by placing this box full of bubblewrap on her chair would stop her jumping up onto it.
Which it did. Until today. When I came downstairs to find this.

so I was passing my favourite sawmill on the way home today and I popped in to see what was in the hardwood offcuts bin. I picked up a nondescript dirty brown piece of plank for 50p, on the off chance it was something magical. I cut off a bit and quickly sanded/polished (hence some sawmarks still visible) it, and it did this.
It doesn't come off very well in the photo, but it's a really shiny coppery-gold colour, flecked with these dark marks, it's absolutely stunnning.
Anyone got any ideas what it might be?
