Where on God’s Green Earth did you find Figured Redwood? And what makes you think it’s okay to only load TWO photos? My eyes need more, doggone it. That’s Gorgeous. No. That’s not a big enough word….....Wait here a minute, whilst I try to find a big enough word…................No. Soorrry. There’s isn’t a big enough word for how this takes my breath away. Redwood was one of my first in the “look how stinkin’ pretty this wood is!” department. And now, I find out there’s FIGURED REDWOOD? Redwood trees grow straight and true, and are very soft. They don’t get burls. All their branches are way up off the ground and, in comparison with their height and girth, are really quite spindly. So, gravitational compression isn’t a factor. Where, Ron? Ohhhhhhh where? I want some. Did I mention this piece is gorgeous?

We found this wood just south of Eureka Ca. There were several vendors with stores south of there. I think the figure comes near the root. I paid only $ 24 for that slab of wood. Have a couple more pieces to turn. It was not easy to turn. Much like pine, soft and had almost an oil to it

Awesome Ron.
Gotta love that grain.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
