PS...here’s the Snake
Can you guess what it is or where it’s from?
That's one crazy piece, where ever it's from! I'm intrigued.
LOVE your profile pic, btw! Some incense looking wood
The Snake is an absolute gem of a find - a 3.5 cm thick piece of OLD jet black, Black Soil Nha Trang Wood. Vietnamese Fast Sinker at its finest.
Quite strongly aromatic at room temp. Rock solid like granite. Took me a good 5 minutes just to saw through it by hand...was so hard I did a terrible job at it, too, as you can see by the uneven cut on that first slice I’ll probably need to do some machine cuts on this one so I get some nice even slices.
This would make some insane beads.
It’ll likely end up getting sliced - what’cha think I should do?
Sharing this- both as a way of high fiving Farid over @F4R1d0uX - as well as sharing some of the convo from the thread as I think it’s pertinent to all of us here at Ouddict.
I thought you might like that pic! Oh man, that would make some unbelievable beads, but I’m hoping you shave some and offer it up in small enough quantities for the mere mortals like me!
Very kind from you bro
Proud of you amigo
Don’t worry...that’s gonna happen, too!
Like many of the successful products Rising Phoenix puts out, they often come about due to ideas and requests coming directly from Customers. Not everything is feasible...but sometimes they are damn great ideas.
In this case...Jean-François in Canada is to blame for this latest foray into fun Thanks J-F!!
