    I've been watching the same one, and have come to the same conclusion. That's too rich for my blood, for a piece that size.

    Oh come on Chuck you old money bags you. You know that would make a great piece.

    I have been watching it to. So I just bought a big cherry piece 11 X 4 and a piece of walnut 10 X 4. Both for about $40 shipped. The walnut came fromt he same guy. I buy a lot of wood from him and Gene has some fine wood. I have never had a bad piece from him.

    I prefer the Thompsons. Why would I want Sorbys? Plus, I know better than to jack up a bid price. I snipe instead.

    I have great difficulty dealing with the concept of actually paying for wood.
    I must be spoiled or something. I even gave almost a truck load of nice turning hunks to a friend recently, and still can't get into my garage.
    When the weather breaks, I'll be cutting up a large walnut tree and a big persimmon. Then, I'll head out to where a professional woodcutter does his milling and bring back a truck and trailer load of discarded burls.
    And folks, some from here, just send me wood to be nice.
    I may have to cough up some bucks for a sheet of plywood though one day soon. That hurts.

    The original one Chuck mentioned was 9" x 4". Not too long ago something like would be selling for about $25 or so on eBay. This particular piece has a lot of the red coloring, but the bid going over $50 was getting ridiculous, IMHO.

    I have been to a LOT of auctions and when it was mentioned about folks not looking around and finding out what something is worth,they just look at it and think I WANT THAT and there not gettin it,and they go nuts,I love that attitude when I'm selling something.
