    For some time i have been building "Shells" made out of various woods. The 2 pictured are made from Zebra wood and Red Wood.
    They take a few days to complete, depending on the hardness of the wood ( did one in Purple Heart, was referred to as a soft rock).
    Its a little late to make them for Christmas, but would anyone be interested in buying them?

    Not sure on pricing but thinking about $80 to start.

    Let me know what you think, and if it would be something you might be interested in. I can make them out of any type of wood too.

    Think you could modify it a bit to make a Ram's horn?

    Cool, let me know, I am in AZ until the end of the week.
    I have more Monkeypod, and some spalted Maple is on its way. I have Lacewood, Paduac, Redwood and Zebrawood on hand.
    I have katalox, but have not messed with it yet, I think its harder than purple heart though.
    If i have time i might see if anyone local has some desert Ironwood.
