Wow….I would have thought that was amboyna if I hadn’t seen the post heading. What an astounding amount of figuring….that will make one beautiful guitar…or vaneer…..also, the woodturner in me is still trying to pick my jaw off the ground….that would be a joy to turn….Where do you find these gorgeous pieces?

Jeez Louise! I’m a total sucker for regular figured Bigleaf. This burl just trumps everything I’ve seen. Another reason to love Oregon. Thanks, Greg.
