    Adding Some Variety

    A bunch of blocks came back from K&G today.
    Looks like it's time to add a little variety to the mix of wood in the web store.
    These are some that I will be adding to the store tomorrow.
    I am pretty sure Stefan can identify these ........probably, .......maybe, .....at least 2 out of 3.

    Very nice, Mark. I wouldn't have gotten the red gum, never used it, but I think I have a few pieces somewhere

    You guys have a lot of it growing there in Hawaii.
    Even if you use it without getting it stabilized it is a nice wood.
    The natural stuff develops a reddish purple patina over time. I am not sure if the stabilized red gum will darken or not.

    You guys have a lot of really cool woods growing there in Hawaii.
    I am thinking I should fly down there some time and you and I can go wood hunting.

    Sounds like a plan! I have been wondering about some of the Aussie woods reg stabilizing, in many I don't see much of a difference before and after (like the mallee burls). And for a while I was thinking about getting only Hawaiian and sustainable woods because we have so many nice and different ones. Depending on how it goes, I will probably go more into that direction with less and less non-local woods.
