This was the very first item that l cut intricate calligraphy in wood.

Having no experience in woodworking there were flaws in this project. Firstly l used the wrong glue. If you want to get into woodworking, use a quality wood glue or else you will notice problems when you come to finishing projects. Secondly, l hate pine. The reason for this was because l wanted to work with hardwoods and there are many woods from around the world that are different colours. Its amazing sometimes when people see a woods that is naturally red, black or purple in colour and they think it is painted. God  has created things we just don’t know about. Search and you will find.

The calligraphy reads Sada Qalla Hul Azim.
