Imagine how many scales/grips can be made from a single 16" x 16" x 8" piece of exotic wood (or burl cap), compare that to one bowl if I turn it. Now imagine having 2 industrial grade shelving floor to ceiling high full of that stuff. BTW, this is after I trimmed my stash by about 90% due to a job related relocation.
(Yep I am bragging/gloating now
Haha it's alright. We all do it. But that sound pretty interesting. My grandpa used to buy exotic wood and make knife handles out of them. They are spectacular.
