    Acer macrophyllum

    The blocks in the photos are Acer macrophyllum, aka Oregon Maple or Big Leaf Maple. But not your everyday Maple.
    These are part of this week's batch of wood that just came back from getting stabilized by K&G.
    They will go into the web store on Friday. I really like these. Hopefully some of you will too.

    I think this is some beautiful wood.
    But, like many things, what makes a beautiful piece of handle material is subjective.
    I can feel it is the prettiest thing I have ever seen, while you might think it's butt ugly.
    ...and we'd both be right, or wrong.

    It doesn't really matter but I would still like to hear what you think.
    Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings. I have thick skin under this layer of sawdust.

    That wood is beautiful, the more you look at it, the more you see.

    Very nice... Does your wife get mad when you play with your wood?

    Nice, I especially like the 'crushed velvet' looking ones.

    This is one of my favorite woods. Beautiful, plentiful and harvested in responsible manner.

    I have started adding these blocks to the web store now.
    This link will take you there if you would like to take a look.
    The individual photos do a much better job showing how nice the figure is with these blocks.
    They are priced from $30 to $55.
