    I'm glad you put a pic of them on the truck to get some perspective. Those are big chunks of wood!

    These are by Tom Clement. He is a luthier in Florida that has been using a lot of my redwood on his bass guitars over the years.
    His website is http://www.clementbass.com

    This is one of the ones I was looking for where he used the sapwood.

    Here is one with sycamore. It was not a real dramatic piece of wood but he still did good with it.

    He did this one with some walnut I got several years ago from the same guy who brought me this sycamore.

    I intend to cut most of the wood to be quartersawn into larger billets that could be used by the luthiers or get cut up into handle blocks later.
    The question about the bright pink. That area will turn a darker red/brown.
