You seem to have an unending supply of beautiful sets. I suspect your maple billets would be another highlight of the visit
My goal over the years of acquiring my wood stash has been to be able to offer a full spectrum of ultimate quality Tonewoods for as long as I would be building. Of course there is no certainty regarding just how long that would be. If I go another ten years at my current pace, which seems unlikely, I will probably not run out of BRW, definitely won't run through my Honduran Mahogany, but will longingly remember the days when I had the most killer Pernambuco the world had ever seen.

I do have more Big Leaf Maple than I expect to use as carving those big back is an ever more daunting task. And yet parting with these beauties for mere money is more than I can bear.

My wife looked up "bear" in the dictionary. That is a broad word!
