    I like the wood but you've got to be more careful who you talk to on the phone.

    Hmm in regards to crazy people. Maybe yes maybe no. For those that remember. The guy that invented pet rock sold quite a few. I guess sales will dictate preferences.

    That's what I thought.
    I am just teasing Pesky. I hope I don't get in trouble with him joking around like this.
    I think he came up with a great idea.
    I had come up with similar results in the past by accident. But after talking to him I decided to see what I could come up with when I tried for these results on purpose.

    Or did he have a good idea?
    Me.....I'm on the fence. Could go either way.
    Typical error of overgeneralization. I have talked numerous times to Pesky on the phone and he clearly is a crazy person, But that doesn't mean he can't have a good idea occasionally

    I like them both, the funky one definitely is not for everyone but the dying came out really great. The black one I would buy, that would look really nice. Is that maple burl? Hard to tell with the distracting colors...

    Yes, it is Maple Burl.
    I found that when there are red/orange areas in the wood, those portions resist the dye.
    First time it happened I thought ***. But they were some of the first pieces to sell.
    Shows you what I know.

    This stuff is not dissimilar to the blue silk oak stuff. Pesky is crazy, btw, regardless of whether it was a good idea or not.
