Miniature Diptych: Lumber

Given the piles of lumber that I’m use to dealing with, this really makes me smile; here is a photo of the complete stack of wood I will be using to create the miniature diptych.

In a more serious vein, one of the benefits I hadn’t considered before of making a smaller work is that the cost for the materials is not a factor, as you can see above in the photograph of the quarter sawn, black ebony that I will be using!  Since there is so little ebony available today, its usage is usually restricted to piano keys and chess pieces, but this diptych is on that relative scale, so it is also suitable.
