Woods Sample Stick

After talking at work today and being asked which woods are available, I’ve made a little sample stick.

After a bunch of photos, this one gets the colours and grains most accurately – though colours do change slightly even within the same batch of the same wood, so it is still purely demonstrative and the actual results may vary slightly. 

The finish I’ve started using is a little more work than just doing a solid gloss coating (which I’m happy to still do on request) but gives a nice slightly satin finish where the texture of the wood is still felt (as opposed to the glassy plastic feeling of the gloss finish).
