Still at the beach but I had to look at this.
A friend of mine stopped at It's a Burl last week and bought 3 pieces for me from the 2 and 3 dollar bins! One is a chunk of maple burl that looks promising, the other 2 are really checked and wet. He had fun, though, and was very impressed by the operation. We may do a motorcycle ride down there when the weather warms just for fun.

Unfortunately i cannot make it....I was really hoping to be able to....But with the new baby, and work and everything, it is not looking promising...
Had a friend here who had a 11h stopover and we had a great day. I clearly need to get out more. But I had looked at this thread and the woods really sound promising, can't wait to see what they look like. Not that I am likely to buy any before I find out whether I will have a job in August... BUT: Mark, we have to talk thuya, that's the only wood on my list (except for the standing order on spalted Hawaiian signature wood...). And one of my favorites, too.
Stefan you don't want to see this thuya Mark is getting, well that is if it's the same stuff as the block I just got from him. Your bank account will suffer!
less talking more sanding... Lets get that amazing stuff in the web store!
