    Another Big Mess .....

    Another big mess of stabilized blocks came back from K&G this morning. It is easy for me to forget what I sent in to be stabilized so I am always excited to go through everything when the boxes of wood come back from being stabilized.

    Here is what they look like fresh out of the box.




    Now I better get to work and make them presentable.
    There are some real treasures in this batch.

    I will start with these first.
    I am almost positive you can't guess what these are.
    Hint: Australia, natural color

    Here they are partially cleaned up.
    They look lots lighter at 36 grit but will darken up and show their true colors as I sand them finer.
    Still hard to tell what they are.

    That wood is foolish crazy nice. I feel like a raccoon attracted to shiny things. No good can come of it -- it's a trap.
