    I’m intrigued by bones and skulls. This appeals to me.

    Pete, what kind of wood are you using for your engravings? Is it a native species?

  3. Pete McLean Says:

    Hi Al, I’ve used a few different timbers for engraving on. Native (to Australia) Eucalypt timbers are suitably hard – though very prone to cracking (not always a bad thing) – and I have used them. The engraving on this post was made on Hawthorn. I collected some a couple of years ago from dead trees amongst a street planting in Canberra.
