This ormament is made from hickory. I had some issues glueing up the blanks so that everything matched up because they were not all exactly square, so the diamond does not match up exactly. Not bad looking none the less. My wife really likes this one.
This ornament is my favorite one I have made so far. The wood is Ipe, which looks a lot like walnut. The design came out quite well, and the blanks matched up quite well, better than the one above.
