Hades yes...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Some of the walnut on top are book matched so if you sell them I would sell the book matched ones as sets.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

There may be several consecutive sheets (lot) and they should be kept together. The more sheets that match the better so you can do 2, 4, 6 .... way matches (starbursts).

Species will also determine it's value.

Absolutely worthless, and dangerous to have around. For your safety please ship it to me immediately. I am such a nice guy I won't even charge you for disposal....

Seriously, a very nice find. Now you have to figure out what projects you can use it for!

Dear Tony and Herb,
On a scale of one to 10 I have to give your problems a rating of zero.
Sincerely, your friend
Chuck
