    their stabilized wood is very nice. Chuck send his wood to WSSI. unlike Craig Steven, Chuck always polished his block/scales that might give you a better idea about the finishing of the wood.

    If you wet Craig's blocks when you get them, they give you a better idea of what they look like finished. He wets them for the photos.

    yes i agree with that, i also wet the wood from Craig just to see the detail of the wood. i just think it's worth to mention that AKS went a step further even though in the end you will sand and polish the wood again. Btw, i also lost the bid on the diamond willow burl. i noticed you got that nice dyed green block, i saw and it caught my attention too. this is the block that i got from him, i didn't wet it though http://i1234.photobucket.com/albums/...o/P1010478.jpg

    I would love to get some of Craig's crazy dyed stuff. Maybe i will just some of my stuff our for some crazy dyeing. It is looking like i will get around 75-100 good blocks out of this haul. Maple tree goes in next, and that is covered also I think some dyed stuff is in the future

    Locust Burl

    Hey Mike,
    That locust burl is no good.
    I am willing to help you out a bit.
    I will send you some prepaid shipping labels and you can send it out this way. That way you won't have to pay dump fees or anything.
