I used a 1:1 pulley setup to try it (it was what I had on hand) May...

After messing with it for awhile, for some reason I...

    Spalted Tamarind

    I have three pieces of spalted tamarind 17.75"×1.625" + three slabs that could be used for inlays, and I'll even toss in a small square and another 17" Square (not sure it is cue worthy) at no charge.
