        might be hard to carve with the grains going all directions!

              I don't think woodknomb is going to do anything with it, he wants to sell it.

                  Seen a couple of pieces of curly basswood at WoodCrafters in Tusla a couple of months back but they were over priced on their basswood. Did pick up a nice piece of tupelo and butternut. Still over priced.
                  Safety first, then enjoy carving! Ken Caney, Ks

                    No actually I was wondering if there was a difference between the two? BUT LOL if you want I will sell it LOL. To tell you the truth between ebay and reselling to other companys. I dont have much time to do special request or sales. I ususally resell #2 carving stock or some that are shy of a even dimesion or that are not s4s , but closer to s2s or even rough. Saves me time and the others cash as well. I have think it would be kind of hard to carve with the directions of the grain and all. I thought it was kind of neat looking. If i had a 14' and about 14' long it wuld make a good guitar blank.

                              that is the order I had gotten onetime. We do get the wood that size believe me. 14' wide by 14' long.

                                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
