    Just arrived, some new goodies

    A small piece of some really nice light colored redwood burl.
    My real treasure, some Brazilian lacewood, with figure a bit bolder than the hawwian silky oak that Mark has, but similar vibrancy and character.
    I bought a bunch of this stuff enough for 80-90 handles depending on how I cut it. I still have to send it out for stabilization, so it will be a bit before I can use any of it.
    I ordered this stuff a couple of weeks ago, not knowing that Mark would no longer be carrying the silky oak.
    When I get it back, I'll be using this on a regular basis, this stuff is just too cool.

    Del,

    I think if you used balsa wood, I would still be honored to work with one of your master pieces! Amazing stuff, sir.

    I took a bit of time last night and cut up half of what I ordered to prepare it for sending out for stabilization. I also cut up that redwood burl.
    Today I spent most of the day forging, which I have not done in awhile and man am I whipped. Just quit about an hour ago.
    I sanded the lacewood, and some waterfall bubinga that is going out with the lacewood.



    Al,
    Thanks for the compliment.
