As I know from Karl he used and often using the so called (in german term) Elsbeere, Sorbus torminalis , which is often wrongly translated or mentioned as Swiss Pear.
This kind of wood is often used modelers in central europe for arsenal models - The grain is similar or even finer than pear and has a slight red touch in color

I am using it also, due to the fact, that it is a beautiful wood - but unfortunately it is also more expensive than pear

Hi Karl,
fabulous work. I remember asking you on the other forum (before I was banned for life ) about your wax finish. Can you please explain it again ?
thank you.
