WudWerkr Rock on! Is that oak out of an old corn crib? I don't know how you have time to work on those with that tenor banjo setting around. dng dng dng dgn dng dng ding ding diiing. Image

I have some bearclaw sitka, in billet form, if your interested in topping that mahogany axe. I already have your address, AND, I would then be totally obliged to stop by for a test drive in July on my way to Nashville... hmm... :)

edit: almost forgot... the blank space below is what is finally happening in my shop... some of you actually bought some of my stuff in the swap meet and opened up a clean spot!
Thanks.

Actually no I got it from a friend as a cutoff he couldnt use for oak cabinets . I had not ever seen oak that looked like that before so I thought it would make a nice "antique " look.

As for the bearclaw I need 2 pcs 3/16"x 6" x 18" if your offering to give some away [:Y:] laughing6-hehe
