    Blue Wednesday

    Tomorrow will be Blue Wednesday.
    I will start adding these blocks to the web store tomorrow afternoon.
    Most are Maple Burl with a few quilted Cascara and Sycamore.
    All were professionally Dyed and Stabilized by K&G.
    Kind of weird, but in a good way. The flash makes them look lighter than they are in real life.

    I think I'm having a flashback!
    I'm a sucker for crazy dyed stuff like this.

    The wood was all dyed the same color of blue but you never know what is going to happen when you dye it.
    Some of the blocks show blue, purple and green.

    What is in the store so far

    I have added these blocks to the webstore and am working on getting the rest of them added.
    The more I look at these blocks the more I like them.
    A good way to describe them would be unusual, strange or weird. But in a good way.
    I think you guys will like these.

    Click on the photo to go to the dyed and stabilized blocks.

    Most of these over sized blocks that I just added will yield multiple matching handles.

    OK, now for the really unusual pieces. Sycamore and Cascara.
    These are all in the store now. Now I can get back to cutting stone bases for M****
