Exotic shield made from exotic woods......

A buddy of mine is an exotic woods craftsman and makes all kinds of cool stuff. I asked him if he would make me the Scuderia Shield and I gave him a picture of it. This is what he came up with.

The woods used are, and this is from him:

Green is poplar
White is swedish pine
Orange is African Mahagony
Yellow is Osage Orange (Rare being that wide of a piece)
Brown band is Walnut
Horse and lettering is Yucatan Bocote' (Expensive little shit)

So this is the piece that is going up in my computer room! I hope you all like it!

No, it's just a hobby. He assured me that I will have a one-of-a-kind piece because he is never making another one of those!

Quite a beautiful creation!

I admire woodworking and crafting skills, and this is a fine example!
