    Hawian Spalted Mango

    With a Titanium Gold Sedona.
    Finished with 6 coats of Minwax Clear Gloss Poly.
    Received the Mango from Kevin (Coysquibbly) at our get together in
    Calgary last week. Thanks Kevin.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Hawian Spalted Mango

    Beautiful job there Les.

    If I recall correctly, I put some spalted mango blanks in the swap box. If they turn out like yours did, that would be nice.

    Aloha, Tony

    Tony,
    I think I glombed onto one piece of the mango in the swap box... it had some blue tinge to it and made a great pen. Don't want to hi-jack Les's post so I'll post in separate thread.

    Les,
    That is as usual a fabulous pen.... you do some great work.

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
