    A gift from friend

    So my friend went to Hawaii and look what she sent me.

    A nice little koa bowl and a couple of nice chungs of koa as well. I'm not sure what Sharon is supposed to do with the camoflage elbow and knee pads, but oh well.

    Looks like I need to get around to ordering those band saw blades from Ellis. I think that koa just might yield a few really nice looking boxes...

    A gift from friend

    Too bad she didn't let me know she was here, I could have sent a couple more chunks of our wood back to you.

    Maybe next time.

    Nice looking gifts too.

    Nice haul there, Brent. I think resawing the koa for boxes is a great idea.
