Finished this float tube and used acacia wood (marbled wood) for the cap.

I burned in two layers to get this wonderful effect

With the maggot tubes it is a very nice set

Beautiful Evert!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.
