    bowhunting11 I machined one for a customer in Alabama and it turned out yellow! lol Actually he said he was allergic to it and it broke him out all over when sanding it, so just in case you do one, be careful till you know if it affects you.

    Btw, the wood will eventually oxidize from the yellow to a beautiful golden brown and really is nice looking.
