My boss brought a customer over to my office and said "Mark, show this guy some of your good knife handle wood".
I showed him some of this stuff.
He stood next to the light on my desk moving a piece of this Koa around under the light.
"No Freakin Way, This can't be real" is what he said.
After a little while I had to toss him out of my office so I could finish taking pictures.
About a half an hour later a lady came to my door and asked if she could see the wood her husband kept talking about.
I figured she meant the Koa and showed it to her.
She said, "I want that one".
I answered "they are kind of spendy" and she said that was ok.
She bought a $70 set of Koa scales. When I asked what they were going to have made with them, she said "probably nothing, my husband just likes to look at them".

This is the wood I am talking about. I just finished adding these to the webstore.
This link will take you to where they are.

Kind of like hypnotherapy.
But I think the guy that was here already had a head start with other mind altering substances.

I have a shelf of wood pieces at home that I keep just because I think they look cool.
My wife says they are hers,......but I'm ok with that.
The way I am going I am going to need a bookcase pretty soon.
Maybe some special lighting and a comfortable chair........
