    Hi, all. I just got back from my hardwood yard, and have some new treasures I wanted to share.

    The woods you see are, right to left as you view the pics, flame birch, canary wood, ambrosia maple with highly figured tiger maple in front of that, black walnut, 8/4 yellowheart, and 8/4 jatoba. The canary wood and flame birch I plan to laminate, while the jatoba and yellowheart will make single piece tillers. The tiger maple, black walnut, and the ambrosia maple will make for really attractive tables or tiller tops if I decide to go that route.

    There are at least four weapons in here, maybe more.

    Davenport lent a paw to show the size in comparison to her.

    Nice haul Dane, what is the thickness on the piece on the bottom left? It looks pretty thick on my iPhone.

    Thanks, Jds6. The two 8/4 planks are 2" thick, and both are heavy buggers. The other planks are between 1" and 1.25" thick.

    Thanks, Pacer. I just went back and picked up a lovely plank of bloodwood. I think my next tiller is going to be the flame birch with the bloodwood for the table. That or the tiger maple. Having dark / light contrasts is very appealing to me.
