    Thanks, Phillip ;) The black ash burl looks great, but the DIW is still a favorite of mine. Always cool seeing the scales come together....

    You just turned my very crappy day into a happy one!! Even though there’s not much fanfare over the Small Guys, I really love seeing this group buy happen, and it’s always exciting seeing the WIP pics. Thanks, @VANCE! :D

    Quite a few of these look like they’re going to have a scandi grind. Are they kind of like dogs where, regardless of breed, they all look the same when first born?

    No scandis...most time they have had the heat treat remenants ground off the primary bevels prior to glue up..with the fact that Andy and I are the only full timers, they all dont always get the scale removed prior now

    You ain’t kidding....it was tough for me to decide between DIW and BABurl. Looks like either one would have been a winner!
