    A Hopeless Junky with Tourettes

    I have to admit;
    When it comes to Koa, I am a hopeless Junky.
    When someone breaks out the really high grade stuff, I can't say no.
    Even if it cost me my left (you know what) I still say yes.
    At my age having two (you know whats) is highly over rated anyways.
    Look what I got!


    I don't think I can use the F word here, but when I opened the package all I could say was F****!
    I think I might have wet myself a little bit too.

    The block is still rough, but it is an old heirloom piece that is just over 11 board feet.
    What I can see is the red/orange color and tight 3 dimensional figure on all the surfaces.
    This piece is making my Tourette Syndrome kick in big time.
    F***, F***, F***

    I am just teasing.
    I still have both of my (you know whats).
    and I am not shouting obscenities.

    But, this is some good stuff!

    Well, I'm glad someone out there knows good stuff when they see it. It doesn't look like much to me. Looking forward to the post stabilization pics!

    Mark -- you're the best! I can't wait to see it (and hopefully snag a block for the future).

    It will look a lot like this when it is stabilized and cleaned up.



    There was more good stuff arriving today as well.
    High grade curly mango and a Killer Kitchen Knife.

    I think we should be able to put together a good matching pair .......or dozen.

    The guy who sent me the Koa and Mango must have been out of old newspapers because this is what he used as packing material to keep the big pieces from rattling around in the boxes.
