    Hi i was given a couple of off cuts from a local job so......
    As you do.

    The wood which is Okan. Rock solid and heavy.
    The grain is stunning up close.

    I recently made one out of a lighter Okan it was at the time the hardest wood i have tried to drill.
    Until this piece. 3 spade bits later and a couple of hours drilling. This wood is hard work.
    My missus is always moaning at me to invest in a vice. Trouble is i do have some but prefer to work wood by hand.

    Top and bottom made from the same wood.

    Shaped by hand and lots of sand paper and sweat.

    hears the basic body. around 20 houres which i think is quite good considering the wood is like sanding a breeze block.

    And Finished.

    Thanks Sam.
    i'm thinking off making some to sell . Just a few now and again to fund some of the bits and bobs.
    But have no idea on pricing. Thats whats holding me back a bit.

    You should do it buddy. Maybe if you spoke to some of the other mod makers they could give you some pointers on price

    Tried to take a couple of better shots.
    But the Okan is so dark it's hard to capture the grain.
