Well I have been here on LJ’s 1 year now.

Need to get more things done and posted. Work and a wedding, (Mine) and tearing apart an old piano, (for the wood of course)

Now I have to rip up carpet and lay down 400 sq ft of Hawiian Koa wood flooring.

4 Knives to make handles for. Starting the first as a gift this weekend. Some Zebrawood and Padauk.

Got to finish grouting my 1 inch stone tile backsplash. Finish the drywall mudding and sanding then paint.

Then build something outta the wood from the paino.

Lots to do never enough time.

It is manufactured hardwood from Lumber Liquidators. 700.00 for a little over 400 sq ft. 5 inch wide and almost 5 1/2 foot long. 38 inch thick. Was gonna go with bamboo, but loved the rich tones of the Koa.

25 year warranty so I think it will hold up well.

Birthday June 10, Wedding june 12, can’t forget that too soon. Went to Gatlinberg. Just got back that is where I picked up the knife blanks.
