Greetings from the socialist capital of America – California.
Why do you think they call it the ’left coast’?

Yes, Vonhagen, no matter what size job, big or small, do a job right, or don’t do it at all.

Any job worth doing is worth doing right. It’s just that some jobs aren’t worth doing.

That truly does look as if it were on fire. A beautiful pice of wood. I’ll look for the finished clock – should be a showpiece for someone’s mantle.

you can get it online but you will pay big bucks for this kind of koa, let me know what size you need and i can have my veneer guy slice some up for you at about 10 bucks a sq ft
