I have been offered some Spalted Birdseye Maple slabs.

9% moisture and 2" thick.

Still waiting for the overall size and how many and how much.

I have a distinct feeling that I will buy whatever he has. Smiley

That appears to be figured birds eye as well as spalted. Never seen that before... Any extra of it around????? I don't really need more wood, but this stuff....

I'm still waiting for him to email me back with all the particulars.

I'll most likely buy all he has..... unless he wants my monthly mortgage payment for them!!

Have to keep wiping the drool off my keyboard whenever I look at it. Smiley

That's usually called exhibition grade, you don't get any better than that.
This is where the $10 per inch falls flat  Grin
Hope you get it, I would love to see it finished

Turning that, and having the majority turned to shavings, seems a waste.
That needs to be a table, or book matched something...

Never thought of making a table.

Will give it alot of thought.

Thanks. Smiley

The plans are to buy enough slabs to do both.

Just a thought.
If it were me, I  might keep some and mill the rest up into whatever I could depending on size and resell it.
Bowl blanks, knife scales, pen blanks etc.

Yeah, Ed..

Those thoughts are also in my head.


I also have a very heavy log of Ebony that I should cut into those small pieces and sell as well.

Maybe keep two pieces for a couple of bowls.

This was actually left behind by the previous owner of my house. It was tucked into a corner of the garage and the movers missed it. Smiley Smiley

A paisley print Strat..... Holy Flash Back Batman! I prefer natural wood. Had a Tele made for me with Swamp Ash. I am not a musician, but just another kid who bought a guitar when the Beatles came out.... I do have fun though...

Woodworkers  that score really good wood never sell it.  They know better.
