I cut these blocks as close to being quarter sawn as possible.
With Sycamore that shows off the flecks and rays that give the Snakeskin look.
I like how they turned out. Even though they are all the same wood, cut the same way, there is a lot of variety from block to block.
This photo shows the batch I have cleaned up and posted in the web store.

Nice. Too bad I will not buy any wood anymore. Never again. Ever. So, I'm not even looking. :)

I could tell that you weren't looking.
Good luck with the willpower. You are a stronger man than I am.
