Love in Marblewood

Exotic woods are by far by favourite thing to work in — but it also means I generally have to stick to only a handful of items made out of that wood. (Compared to say, walnut, which I can work with all day – because I can afford to work with it all day)

This is marblewood. I’ve never worked with it before I cannot wait to work with it again! It’s awesome! I actually made a couple of these, but they look the same (save for wood grain).

They have a dovetail in the back and hooks on the bottom.. I have a similar style in my kitchen and it holds my car keys.

The teal colour is the only thing I was able to find that contrasted nicely with the marblewood.. keeping the design simple really helped too. You can find this in my Etsy shop.
