    Glad you guys showed up! I was beginning to think I was all alone in here.
    Here's another set to keep the "variety" alive. SOLID Carbon Fiber grips. This is the first time I've worked with this material. It's expensive and ITCHY! :D The finished look is very cool though, having a great depth and a constantly changing look as it moves. I really like the way it stands out against a stainless frame! I bought a a whole sheet of it, so I'm sure there will be more pics of the material to come.
    Enjoy the pics, even though they don't capture the material very well.

    A set of Buffalo horn bobtails. Buffalo horn appears black, but on closer inspection you see there are ghostly gray shapes and waves in there. It's really cool. Of course you can sometimes find horn with white streak running through it, or horn that is more brown or honey color. It's all beautiful stuff!
    Enjoy!

    How about some Black Ash Burl? Great lighter color with a very unique burl pattern that is beautiful. This wood will usually need to be stabilized if you're looking at using it for a project, as it's very lightweight, but once stabilized it strong and good to go!
    Enjoy!

    Another domestic wood that's easy to overlook is Cherry. Cherry is beautiful on it's own with it's variety of colors and it's natural darkening in the sun - but when you get cherry BURL, it's even better. Beatuiful stuff!
    Enjoy the pics,

    Todays set is just wonderful! It is naturallly two-toned Amboyna Burl. You get this two tone effect when the wood comes from the edge of the burl and contains both the outer sapwood and the inner heartwood. The results of this mix are always cool, no matter what the wood is, it's just that the colors of Amboyna make it spectacular.
    Hope you enjoy the pics!

    I'm glad to see that you are enjoying the pics of natures beauty!
    Once again, I am jumping 8 pages ahead in my photobucket folder, but this wood just wont' wait. Today's set is Spalted Asian Walnut. I've not seen spalting in this wood before and it's gorgeous! Asian Walnut is hard as a rock - much harder than our American black Walnut. This particular set exhibits both sapwood and heartwood, but some wonderful fine line spalting is running through it. I have a soft spot for spalting like this. It's so unique awnd beautiful. It's very gratifying to cut into a piece of wood and find a treasure like this. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do!

    Here's a wood that is beautiful and domestic (mostly). Desert Ironwood comes from the Sonoran desert which goes through the southwest United States down into Mexico and covers a LARGE area. I am lucky enough to have a friend whose family owns a house right on the Sea of Cortez, so when I go down there to dive I always try to see if there is any of this wood available. Most of it is small pieces that are already carved into various items that the locals sell. It's rare to find pieces large enough to use even for grips without having to pay through the nose for a large carving of some whale. ;) I am closing in on a main supplier of raw logs though, so in the next year I hope to have a good source. Desert Ironwood is naturally full of cracks, splits and voids - just a result of the harsh climate that it grows in. I will use only solid pieces, so I guess my being very picky doesn't help my quest.
    At any rate, the wood is beautiful when fabricated with it's dark patterns cutting through the honey colored base wood. This set is shown on a SA EMP.
    Hope you enjoy the beauty!

    Desert Ironwood is so great for knife handles and gun grips. You found yet another one of my favorite woods Sarge.
