Reel Seats~From The Woods

 Its always interesting cutting into spalted Maple or Koa. Its like unearthing hundreds of unique patterns each with its own fingerprint. The above wood is my newest acquisition ready to be sent off to the stabilizer. Half of all of these blanks are already spoken for which speaks volumes about the scarcity of prime spalted curly Koa and Maple. The combination is hard to come by but makes for drop dead gorgeous spacers. Blanks are cut large to accommodate both conventional and flared spacers.
