    I like the burl, kinda different. Are they big enough for 2 wa handles?

    Nope,
    Most are under 2 inches wide.
    Cutting the burl, there is a lot of waste in between the solid areas.

    Well,
    I had planned on listing the Sycamore in the webstore today.
    But.........
    I really messed up the photos.
    I was trying to use a lower ISO and no flash.
    Now I have a ton of photos that look muddy, plus they are blurry too.

    Just finished new photos and should be able to get them in the store tomorrow.
    Here is another bad family photo.


    and.....

    I have finished adding the new batch of Stabilized Sycamore Blocks in the web store.
    This link will take you to where they are at.

    Mark,

    Do you think you could get two scales and a Wa handle out of one of those blocks? I really, really like one of the burls, but would love to have it be more useful than a single handle if possible

    I don't think so. Unless it was for very narrow handle knives.
    I try to leave the blocks wider than needed so you can position the design in the wood how it looks best with your handle.
    Normally for a western handle the makers will want 1&1/2" in width
    and for a wa about 1&1/4 width
    Cutting removes about 1/8" of material.
    So would need a piece almost 3" wide.
