    Kind of pretty even though it's not burl

    For straight grain Desert Ironwood, I thought these were pretty good looking.
    I will be adding them to the store on 3/7. Scales only, no blocks.
    I found some nice Ironwood that was poorly cut but still very good wood.
    So I spent the day today getting them sanded flat and even. Just about ready to go into the store tomorrow.

    Think anyone will like this stuff?

    Mark - is that color contrast from lighting, or do they look that good in daylight? oh and how thick are they on average?

    They are just under 3/8" thick. I think the guy who had cut them originally used a dull shovel.
    Good contrast and color changes when you move them around in direct light.
    The middle right set looks a tad bit darker in RL.
    The others in the last photo look pretty true to color on my monitor.

    I don't know if anyone is going to like them Mark.

    Just send them on over and I will dispose of them for you.

    Sorry for your loss.
