    Fresh from Hawaii

    This is some of the wood I bought with the money from the 2 day sale a while back.
    5A Fiddleback Mango. 15+ lines of curl per inch.
    It will look a lot better after it gets stabilized and sanded.

    I thought you would notice this Stefan.
    This is some of the tightest fiddleback I have seen.
    The photos stink, but it is really really good Mango.
    When I was told about the wood I told the guy I wanted all of it.
    I bought it sight unseen. But this guy has also been a source of some of my very best Koa.

    The mango is probably about 6 weeks away.
    3 weeks to finish drying then off to K&G for stabilizing.
