These got back from K&G sooner than I expected. UPS just dropped them off a few minutes ago.
I will be cleaning them up today and start listing them in the web store tomorrow.

These are big blocks about 5&3/4" x 2&1/2" x 1&1/4" in size.
The wood has been carbon dated to be 5460 years old. A copy of the report will be included with blocks purchased.
Cost will be about $75 each. A bit higher for figured pieces.
Repeat customers can have a 20% discount.

I will make another post in this thread when they are ready in the web store.

These are the ones I have cleaned up so far.
I will be pricing these and taking photos in the morning.
Should be able to get them in the web store around noon PST.

The bog oak is darker in person. The camera flash makes them look lighter. Colors range from dark gray to black.
I really like this stuff. I am having a knife made using some of this mixed with red koa.

And there is a little bit of Black Palm that I have cleaned up as well.

Stunning good looking. Never think about the the solid wood block could be such impression.
I appreciate on the tea table chisel from a old tree root, and also your attention the wood itself.:lol2:

He said noon, PST on Sat!

Mark, can you set one of the big, dark stabilized blocks aside for me? I have an order waiting for one, but I will be asleep by the time you post them (working 3rd shift). Thanks!

It happens every time -- as soon as I place an order, something else shows up that I want/need/covet :-(

Damn man did I miss out on the figured stabilized pieces??!!! Is there any figured stuff left?

It's hard to tell the figured pieces; the ones I saw were all $75 IIRC, so either they all went really quickly or he hasn't posted them yet. I managed to snag 2 blocks before he sold them all :)

I snagged one just to be safe and 1 hour later they were all gone. I hope I didn't miss out on them. They popped up so quickly while I was at work. As usual. :(

These ones Mike mentioned are Natural Pieces - Not Stabilized.

Some of the blocks had figure but it was hard to see. So I just priced them all the same.
I will clean up some more and get them in the store ASAP.

The last batch of this sold out real quick so I cleaned up some more blocks.

I just finished adding another batch of Stabilized Bog Oak to the Web Store.

If anyone is still interested in getting a block of the stabilized Bog Oak,
there were still 8 stabilized blocks in the web store the last time I looked.
