I saw this the other day and meant to comment but like most things I got busy doing other things.

I like this Chas especially the contrast between the woods not to bold but just enough to make it a nice piece

Thanks Derek, trying to get 'sympathetic' if possible in the wood choices, main problem with the Sumac which I have is that it has dried out quite soft in character (you can mark it with a finger nail ), needs mixing with something else to add some robustness to it, the few pieces I did last year as single wood items I would not consider as 'robust' if subject to rough handling, not that they are likely to break but I think the visual appearance may bruise and look less than acceptable after a while.
