Elm / Cambara engraved scales

The Elm is a local tree, known for his pinewood-like structure. It isn't the toughest kind, but has incredible lines and looks a bit darker, compared to the Birchwood... The knife I used, a Spartan, is for display purposes only. These scales will end up in one of the cabinets. ;)

This engravement is another attempt to fill the depth with acrylic paint. I used plain white, because the wood has a dark shade and makes the engravement stand out...

This next one was a gift for my colleague. This is the guy who gave me the wood samples a few weeks ago...
