The Cocobolo Tree

Post by philamor » Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:01 am

I have a Robertson/ Henderson set of pipes (as veriified by MR. Sharpe himself, no less, a few years ago when I had a wee repair done) and I love the red hue that is coming through the wood and I intend to get the whole set buffed down to the original patina some day, but I have been looking at some of the the other things that look great made from Cocobolo - pens -boxes, etc, the patterning is just lovley and nearly always different, too, just like this wee jig

If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!

love the last part.
