Default curly koa and maple pictures

Some of you have asked about pictures of the maple burl and curly koa. Here they are.
The first is a curly koa stabilized knife block that would yield two curly koa pens. It is as curly as I have seen koa. I also have larger blocks of curly koa up to 2 x 6 x 12. I also have lots of 2x2x 6 and 1 x 2 x 6 as you can see in the photos 3,4. This is from a very large 6 ft in diameter tree that had to be removed. It has some very interesting colors and spalt. $6 each for extra size 3/4+ blanks. The maple burl (last picture) is slightly under 3/4 but have more larger blanks.
