    Coming Saturday - Stabilized 5460 Year Old Stabilized Bog Oak

    These got back from K&G sooner than I expected. UPS just dropped them off a few minutes ago.
    I will be cleaning them up today and start listing them in the web store tomorrow.


    These are big blocks about 5&3/4" x 2&1/2" x 1&1/4" in size.
    The wood has been carbon dated to be 5460 years old. A copy of the report will be included with blocks purchased.
    Cost will be about $75 each. A bit higher for figured pieces.
    Repeat customers can have a 20% discount.

    I will make another post in this thread when they are ready in the web store.

    These are the ones I have cleaned up so far.
    I will be pricing these and taking photos in the morning.
    Should be able to get them in the web store around noon PST.

    The bog oak is darker in person. The camera flash makes them look lighter. Colors range from dark gray to black.
    I really like this stuff. I am having a knife made using some of this mixed with red koa.



    And there is a little bit of Black Palm that I have cleaned up as well.

    Stunning good looking. Never think about the the solid wood block could be such impression.
    I appreciate on the tea table chisel from a old tree root, and also your attention the wood itself.

    He said noon, PST on Sat!

    Mark, can you set one of the big, dark stabilized blocks aside for me? I have an order waiting for one, but I will be asleep by the time you post them (working 3rd shift). Thanks!
