ElgaKoster Posted April 23, 2014 Share Posted April 23, 2014 I was wondering, has anybody ever made a miniature with oyster veneering? My husband is busy cleaning out the garden from some pruning he did a few weeks ago, I decided to go and see if there is any useable wood in the pile before he throws it away, as a friend sometime ago asked me if I could make a box for her and it has oyster veneering on it and you don't find twigs for sale :-)I found this in the pile, it has a very fine smooth grain, it is an indigenous tree/shrub in South Africa, the birds love to feed off the berries. http://www.plantzafrica.com/planthij/hallerialucida.htmI love how the center pops and reckon it will look good for this kind of veneering, my slices are about half an inch in diameter, there are smaller twigs too.
