I recieved an email recently asking me if I would make a pair of Perch Bob's, after exchanging a few emails I was given specific instructions as to what wood and it what order he would like it put together, enjoying the challenge I started work.
The first float has a Mahogany top section then a thin slice of Walnut and an Ash bottom. A lightly whipped cane stem finishes it off.
The second float was to have a Yew top section, a thin layer of Mahogany and the base in Elm, again finished with a lightly whipped cane stem.
The Elm has a lovely grain.
The finished pair standing around 15cm high on there bases.
