I have been working with abalone for awhile with some ocean/tropical themes but decided to see what this looks like. I like how it turned out. Used draft board base with maple veneer and abalone.
Oh wow that’s incredible. I never would have guessed abalone. Do you dye it, or does it come that way?
I bought it that color. Technically they have it called Paua purple agate.
That is a very pretty combination of materials.
Where do your source your abolone, if you don’t mind me asking? Do you laser it to fit as well? Beautiful!
I get it from a supplier in New Zealand. You can also get some from Amazon, but the New Zealand material is better. Yes, it is lasered to fit.
