The biodiversity of the world has created a wide array of beautiful, vastly different types of trees. These different trees vary from genus and region in color, texture, and even tree ring patterns. Aside from flooring and cabinet making, exotic hardwoods in smaller scrap-like sizes can be worked by hand in the following different ways. |
Making Instruments Acoustic guitars, electric guitars, and ukuleles can all be formed out of irregular blocks of exotic woods. The finish of the wood, as well as the quality of sound, can be influenced and altered as a result of the wood that you use to make them. Whether it’s carving out a bass or making accent pieces for the guitar, it can create a unique buying incentive to use exotic woods in your handmade instruments.
Handmade Kitchenware Wooden bowls, spoons, and cutting boards are incredibly common in grocery stores across the globe. If you want to embrace the rustic, or perhaps even the modern, then carving and shaping exotic woods into a bowl set could be an excellent opportunity to make some high quality products.
Mechanical Pencils and Pens As unexpected as it may sound, there is indeed a market for mechanical pencils and pens that are made of carved down and hollowed out hardwoods and softwoods.
All of these DIY options for turning your exotic hardwoods into interesting and unexpected things will inevitably require specialized equipment, exact measurements to follow, and an expert plan to emulate. Also, don’t forget that the finish you use on a creation can enrich its appearance and seal the wood, protecting it for longer.
