    I just finished adding some sets of saya material in the webstore.
    This link will take you there.
    Some of the woods so far are Quilted Maple, Highly Figured Redwood, Curly Bubinga, Curly Mango and some Old Growth Redwood.

    The wood has only been sanded to 80 grit on my drum sander so you can barely see the figure.
    It is good stuff that will look way better when you finish it.
    Here are some example photos.

    The Sycamore will be a little way off in the future because I have to cut it oversized, then a month in the dehumidification kiln, then cut the sets.
    But I will be cutting some quartersawn to show the snakeskin look.

    I tried to keep the cost as reasonable as possible.
    A good portion of my costs are in the labor and shipping on top of the cost of the raw wood.

    Because of this it is probably not cost effective to buy plain wood from me.
    Hopefully the nicer stuff will make this all worthwhile.

    I just bought some maple to go with some stabilized maple burl handle wood I already acquired. This should be interesting!

    If this keeps up I will be eating a lot of top ramen and baked potatoes.

    Seriously I think your pricing is spot on. On your first post I was thinking it would end up being over 100$ for just the wood.
