This is some of the wood I bought with the money from the 2 day sale a while back.
5A Fiddleback Mango. 15+ lines of curl per inch.
It will look a lot better after it gets stabilized and sanded.

I thought you would notice this Stefan.
This is some of the tightest fiddleback I have seen.
The photos stink, but it is really really good Mango.
When I was told about the wood I told the guy I wanted all of it.
I bought it sight unseen. But this guy has also been a source of some of my very best Koa.

The mango is probably about 6 weeks away.
3 weeks to finish drying then off to K&G for stabilizing.
