Thank goodness the price is marked down. No way I could afford that otherwise.

I was wondering what to do with the cashiers check from the Royal Family in Nigeria. Think I'll buy them all.

But if you have to have a high figured set of “The Tree” - there you go.... You don’t see these show up on the market often and the ones you see now don’t generally have the figure we expect out of The Tree.....

The other interesting thing to me is that SM appears to be taking a crack at selling a variety of tonewood rather than their historical position of focusing more on tools and supplies and not having more than a trivial tonewood stock.

The perfect "starter set" for your first build.

I would need a strong sedative before attempting to bend those sides 🙄

If anyone is interested I’m selling ‘The Tree’ sawdust for $100 per gram.
