    Mail god were good to me this week

    Well the mail man drove up to the door and started handing me a package that weighed a ton and I fist started yelling at the wife to see what he heck she ordered. Then I took a closer look at the return address and this is what it said

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Almost forgot this is the other package I got last week from Ed Ricci. He made these on his homemade CNC

    Very cool. Koa is sweet wood. (I have a koa guitar.)

    BTW, I did a little editing of your first photo to hide the addresses. I hope you don't mind. It's generally not a good idea to advertise home addresses on a public forum.

    Glad it got there OK Jay. I hope this wood works for finger boards. It made a great floor and I had some left over, so I band sawed the finish off and planed them down. I left 'em a little fat so you could take them down to final thickness. This wood reacts to sun light just like cherry and will darken over time.
