That's what it takes to get the good stuff.
Being in the right place at the right time with a pocket full of cash.

I was supposed to be dropping off today's packages at the Post Office, and then come right back so I could try to get caught up with my work.

Instead of coming right back, I bought a door first.

So that's veneer, right?
Just one big thick piece of veneer. 2&1/2" thick x 35" wide and about 7 foot tall.
It is a solid, single piece of quartersawn redwood.
Looking at the endgrain I am guessing that the tree it was cut from had to be about 10+ feet thick.
The curly figure covers about 1/2 of the slab and then fades.
Much better curly figure than I can usually get.

I tried to haggle with the guy but he said "You're just going to cut it up into a bunch of knife handle pieces."
I asked "How do you know? I don't even know you."
He said, "It's a small town and my ex works at the Post office".

I hope you guys notice the commendable self discipline I have by not making any comments like;
how many cans you know would have to collect to get $34 or what that equates to in dumpster diving time.
Not even any comments about posting on the forums during happy hour.
I thought I was exercising remarkable self restraint.

It was my rent money.

I won't be cutting it until after the OKCA show.
Until then I will have it locked up in my storage building.
Otherwise my boss would end up selling it to those dang guitar builders who show up snooping around my stash.
