Quick google search netted me this: https://www.allmodern.com/Cole-and-G...RoCEZYQAvD_BwE

At 800lbs you better have some friends to help ya cut that one up. :)
That is what it is. I believe this was a returned item so there is a significant discount on it.

Didn't see this until today.

I did turn several pens with Monkey pod - going with my wife on a business trip to Brazil later this spring.

The Monkey Pod are the main section on pen #2 and #3. Open grain like Paduk/Mahohany/Oak. Easy to turn, but my blanks were not heavy, as has been mentioned in previous posts?? I did like them though.
