Ok guys I'll ante up the money for the lot of them. I definately don't want all of these, but figured you guys would love to get some of it also. Just don't leave me hanging fellas, not really trying to have a grand tied up in just a few pieces of wood lol.
thanks again everyone,
Everyone that has posted before this post gets the exact amount that they asked for. No more than that as I want a couple for myself I don't use paypal so I'll have to be money order via mail + S/H
If anyone is going to change their mind then now is the time to speak, as I'll be sending the cash TODAY. I'll let all of you know when they are in an you can send payment and I'll send you the wood.
I can't remember, but it seems like you have a lathe or access to one. If you do, can you put the blanks between centers and measure the run-out at 12 inches from the joint end? To me, that would be the best way to determine the straightness of each blank. Might even ask your supplier to do this before you buy to determine if they are all straight. The size is right at the final pass stage for most of us, so there is little to no margin to work with if a blank has a big hop.
yep got a metal and a wood lathe. Can do that for ya. They should be in hopefully b/f I come back offshore in two weeks. What I'll do is have you guys send the money when I'm out here that way when I get back in from my next hitch I can just pack them up and send them off to their respective buyers.
I'll try my best to be fair to everyone interested....
Since there is such a demand for these I'll try and spread them around as best I can. I'm getting these to share with everyone so we all can have some of the gold, I've noted all that are interested and will get to you first come first serve once the goods are in my possession.
Unless if some end up backing out we may have to keep it to just a few per person. As I said I want to be fair to everyone, and I will be hocking them for a very fair price. I'm doing this as I believe business should be done, FAIR/HONEST. So if anyone has particular questions such as price/per or anything else then just shoot me a PM....
Thanks very much for showing so much interest and not leaving this coonass out to dry lmao....
If you guys like this stuff, can't wait to show you all some pics of some worm eatn mahogany that I have from my grandfather! He was a master turner and always spoke about doing something with it, and was probably his favorite piece of wood, sadly his thoughts never came to fruition b/f he passed. I have a 6x6 of it about 4.5ft long he found it on the beach about 50 yrs ago! So no telling how old that wood was, It was a big log and he cut it square.
I was thinking about making one plain jane with it and using some crushed up turquoise or MOP and mixing w/epoxy and smearing it into the holes....would look CRAZY SICK! Then maybe some points out of it on a half splice into maple with this brazilian rosewood on the handle and the mahogany repeated in the buttsleeve
sadly none of it is for sale but can't wait to share some photos.
