    No Freakin Way! This can't be real.

    My boss brought a customer over to my office and said "Mark, show this guy some of your good knife handle wood".
    I showed him some of this stuff.
    He stood next to the light on my desk moving a piece of this Koa around under the light.
    "No Freakin Way, This can't be real" is what he said.
    After a little while I had to toss him out of my office so I could finish taking pictures.
    About a half an hour later a lady came to my door and asked if she could see the wood her husband kept talking about.
    I figured she meant the Koa and showed it to her.
    She said, "I want that one".
    I answered "they are kind of spendy" and she said that was ok.
    She bought a $70 set of Koa scales. When I asked what they were going to have made with them, she said "probably nothing, my husband just likes to look at them".

    This is the wood I am talking about. I just finished adding these to the webstore.
    This link will take you to where they are.

    she said "probably nothing, my husband just likes to look at them".

    That is just wrong!

    Kind of like hypnotherapy.
    But I think the guy that was here already had a head start with other mind altering substances.

    I have a shelf of wood pieces at home that I keep just because I think they look cool.
    My wife says they are hers,......but I'm ok with that.
    The way I am going I am going to need a bookcase pretty soon.
    Maybe some special lighting and a comfortable chair........
