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.

Once Favre hangs it up though, it years of cellar dwelling for the Pack. (Geoff 12-18-07)

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.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
