Beautiful grain,,, I can see it on a Nessmuk or Hudson Bay style camp knife, that would make great grip panels for a 1911 also, please post the finished products, I'm sure they'll be top notch.

I'd love to see an electric guitar body made out of some of that, especially the two tone.

How is it for working with? Is it brittle or crumbly when shaping?
