Ok, I take that back. I don't think I have ever been this nervous about cutting a piece of wood.
The photo shows the rough cut slab but it is difficult to see what is in the photo.
I have cut lots and lots of rare and very expensive woods, but this piece impresses me more than anything I have ever seen. Now I have to cut it up so it shows itself to it's full potential.
So, I am going to look at it a while. Then I will sketch how I think I should cut it. Then I will start cutting.
