    Eye candy indeed.....how much costing in 3 years when they're dry (I would presume they will be air dryed?)

    Very nice. But I'm a little (actually, a lot) confused by the white spots interspersed with the figure. Is that the heartwood contrasting with the sapwood, (or vice versa)? Maybe its the angle the blanks were cut at, but the way the white appears right in line with the figure is hard to visualize how it got there.

    The white is sapwood. One would have to look closely at the blanks to see if you could turn a finished stock and eliminate the sapwood. Of course, you would also have to be sure that the handle had straight, dense, clean grain. But, if everything works, there is some nice figure in that wood. Jake

    Some of those pieces with sap wood may not be usable for stock work due to the sap placement in the blank. If you're interested in selling them, please email me privately. I'm a woodworker, and intarsia (wood pictures) is my main art form, as well as turned pens, salt/pepper grinders, knife handles, etc. What may be unusable for you is the perfect size for me. I'm always looking for interesting pieces of wood, and yours definitely qualify.

    Browning, Unfortunately, I don't think it is Jerry's wood. And if I don't miss my guess, the guy who owns it probably thinks it is perfect for guns. But, maybe I am incorrect. Jake
