    Ironwood Burl Blocks

    I just got some Ironwood Burl blocks. Probably the most expensive wood I have ever purchased.
    I haven't decided if I am going to save them for the Boise Show or put some in the webstore.
    Most of what I got are cut oversized and will be really expensive. My photos are never as good as the pieces look in person.
    Here is a quick glimpse of what showed up.

    There have been too many phone calls, PMs and emails for me to be able to save these for the knife show.
    I only hope I can get more of these. They are the closest to flawless I have ever seen with Ironwood Burl.
    My wife wants me to bring one home to show here. I already know I will never get it back.

    I will get these photographed and start posting them in the webstore tomorrow.

    I'm hoping that one of my customers scores one, I'd like to work on one of these, they look great.

    Dang Dave. You are worse than I am.
    I just finished listing the ones that are left. A couple people snatched up several before I could even get them listed.

    This was kind of scary for me because the wood was pretty expensive from the wholesale supplier.
    My boss was really hesitant about letting me get these.
    His reasoning was that they were too expensive for most people, it was a lot of money and a much lower profit margin.
    He felt the risk did not match the potential rewards. Looks like it will work out though.

    Yep, the one I had my eye on is gone. There are plenty of other good ones left though... just gotta decide before they sell too.
