Very nice pieces, nice finish on them as well. What type of finish do you use?

Canarywood is one if my all time favorites. Love the smell and the great color variations.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Purplehard-----like a rock. Good stuff.I have one 120 footer on my property and a few 60-70 or so. No can touch. Only big branches can be cut until the foresters determine the center is rotting out. They said maybe in 20 years. I'll be sitting in my wheelchair, in my diaper, drunk, trying to figure out when and where I got a purple heart.

Nice pieces Dusty,
canary wood is my all time favorite. Never met a piece I didn't like. Made my humidor out of it and also the gearshift knob for my jeep.

What do the foresters have to do with anything maybe it's just different here but if I find a tree that I like and will mill and all that I cut it down I don't have to ask anyone's permission

The rules are most likely different in Costa Rica now -- the country has had a very high rate of deforestation. LINK.
