Actually there were a few of them.
But this one really caught my eye.
She's a little bit rough right now but I am guessing she will clean up real good.

So you calling her ugly? As in ugly duckling?

It is some real good figured mango but hard to see what is there until it gets stabilized and sanded.

Looks pretty good already! How large is that piece?

Sure looks great! Nice score.

This one is about 8x18x2

Just out of curiosity, can you have a piece that size stabilized effectively or do you have to cut it up before you send it out?

You always want to cut to near actual size.
This insures complete penetration and a good cure.

So...you can skip the cutting part and just ship it to me.

Here she is with her friends.

I am going to try to do some matching handle saya sets with this wood.

Darn, I keep hoping it's going to be quilted maple!
