    I second that! I'm very happy with the wood I've ordered from him as well. Great stuff, for sure!

    I cut into a quilted maple billet (which looked like it would be a 4-5A top) and found this:

    Needless to say, I won't be using this on the build I was going to be using it on... Those cracks are deep too, just not deep enough to show on the outside...

    Nah, I'm thinking I could pull off a really cool kind of rustic/distressed look with it. I'm going to brainstorm on what I can do with it, but I think I can salvage it with some black epoxy in the cracks and some cool staining.

    I just got a big piece of African mahogany and some nice hard maple with subtle flame throughout. I'm hoping to get a trio of one-piece bodies out of the mahogany :D

    ***EDIT***
    I did a quick mockup in eMachineShop, and it looks like I should be able to get 3!

    Pulled some wood out from the garage... Some cracking on the black limba, not sure if it'll be usable... The rest is bubinga and mahogany.

    And here's a piece of flamed purpleheart I pulled out from the garage:

    Also purchased some wood today:
