What a lovely piece of wood. I bet it DOES sing. Very nice.

You gotta wonder on some of these, do the customers just go "gimme the sickest piece of wood you have?" or it's just luck of the draw.

Well, for the "sing" go to pg 1 and listen to the scuzzy little youtube clip I put up. Also, you'll see the story in my Waiting Room thread. In short, I rolled the dice and gave up all thoughts of input/control/suggestions on type of Claro figuring. I am VERY happy.

There's a thread in Product Suggestions going on about sub-typing various categories of Claro walnut, and it does seem to have some merit.

Coda is so right that this is a great place to start!!
And Gumby paid it forward by bumping my NBD thread.
This place is just so cool and it's great to see so many awesome Carvin builds again.

Good call Gumby, good call.

I've never captured its beauty yet in a photo. Natural low-light might do it. It has a ton of loose, loose quilty rolling in it. It's called BEM but dude...
