I've been hanging on to this small leftover piece of curly red oak for a long time, I'm glad I did.
It's pretty cool stuff, the curl is as tight as you would find in maple.
It's almost good enough to be called fiddleback.
I had a thin sheet of cork kicking around, and I decided to place some under the rasp till to protect the drawer bottom from them. I really like the effect, it deadens the sound when the handle bumps the bottom. I may extend the idea to the rest of my bench.
