For straight grain Desert Ironwood, I thought these were pretty good looking.
I will be adding them to the store on 3/7. Scales only, no blocks.
I found some nice Ironwood that was poorly cut but still very good wood.
So I spent the day today getting them sanded flat and even. Just about ready to go into the store tomorrow.

Think anyone will like this stuff?

My wife thinks I am on my way home,
but.......I had to try to get a better photo. No luck.
But it is a bigger photo.

Mark - is that color contrast from lighting, or do they look that good in daylight? oh and how thick are they on average?

They are just under 3/8" thick. I think the guy who had cut them originally used a dull shovel.
Good contrast and color changes when you move them around in direct light.
The middle right set looks a tad bit darker in RL.
The others in the last photo look pretty true to color on my monitor.

I don't know if anyone is going to like them Mark.

Just send them on over and I will dispose of them for you.

Sorry for your loss. :tease:
