Did I mention the makore was drop-dead gorgeous??

Thanks David!!

Dave sells great stuff. I got some pre 1963 cuban mahogany a while back, and I am afraid to use it.....amazing doesn't start to describe it.

Happy to hear the wood didn't disappoint. I'm working on putting some more together. My boys are also working on some more flat rate boxes. This time I believe we may have some boxes of 12/4 turning blanks.

I got to meet Dave and his beautiful family today when I picked up some of the makore and a box of figured walnut. Incredible material; the pictures in the post do not do it justice. Got the 5 cent tour of his shop and a peek at some work under way. It was a great time.

The down side is it's a woodworkers candy store  Big Grin , and my bank has a branch about 5 minutes away.
On a positive note, when this is all said and done I may be able to claim him on my taxes. Laugh Laugh  Laugh

If he posts it.. buy it !!   Please !!!  Save me !!!!

I hope you have some Maple and other figured wood for sale in Sept for when we get back to turning. Yes   We will need 4/4 and any 6/4 you may have.  I will not say good wood since all you have is excellent wood.
