    Trying to pick the 2 best blocks

    One of the guys here wanted me to pick out two of the best Koa blocks from the newest batch.

    I would choose the bottom right and middle left.
    But the top right and bottom left are also amazing.

    Middle right to me stands out for some reason.

    The wavy lines that go through the blocks lengthwise add an interesting pattern. But, really, choose any two at random and you'd be good. Not sure that helped, but there you go.

    Regards,

    Bottom left would be my second favorite after middle right.

    Like Johnny.B.Good the Middle right is my favorite followed by bottom left. I didn't specify originally due to the two blocks needed. I understand they are all pretty. For me it comes down to visual tightness of grain alignment and how it runs in the block perpendicular to the edges.

    I prefer "straight" horizontal lines across the block, but they're all nice.
