Most of these blocks of Koa have Compression Curly Figure. This type of figure can occur at the base of trees growing on a steep hillside.
I added the rest of the Snakeskin Sycamore to the store and put them on sale.
Some new dyed Curly Maple and Maple Burl arrived today from the stabilizers.
These are pieces of what the Koa dealers call Red Koa. In person these stabilized blocks look more of an orangeish brown. But they are beautiful. One of my favorites for Koa.
These are the last pieces of the latest batch of stabilized Maple.
These new blocks have some very good 3 dimensional figure.
I just posted these in the store. Much bolder figure than you normally see with Curly Maple.
I am very happy with how nicely this batch of stabilized Sycamore turned out.
