    Not a fan of sycamore... but the second piece looks like a super tight piece of koa!

    I cut these blocks as close to being quarter sawn as possible.
    With Sycamore that shows off the flecks and rays that give the Snakeskin look.
    I like how they turned out. Even though they are all the same wood, cut the same way, there is a lot of variety from block to block.
    This photo shows the batch I have cleaned up and posted in the web store.

    Nice. Too bad I will not buy any wood anymore. Never again. Ever. So, I'm not even looking.

    I could tell that you weren't looking.
    Good luck with the willpower. You are a stronger man than I am.
