Bet ya cussed when that cocobolo broke. The bocote sure has some nice grain to it, thats gonna be a nice lookin riser.
Bocote is one of my favorites.
...stood alone on a montaintop, starin out at a great divide, I could go east, I could go West, it was all up to me to decide, just then I saw a young hawk flyin and my soul began to rise......

Bocote with a red/brown colored I beam is just stunning.

It was Grenadillo, but had that coco color...  Nah, just glad it broke before I glued up into a bow.

Bue, I'm hopin so . Should have put yellow accents in tho, that might have been really killer with bocote and bubinga. Ahhh maybe next time...
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Kenny that sander is Harbor Frieght. I have not used a bunch yet (Ben in TD mode) But the table seems to be pretty solid so far.

Kenny, I am kind of glad your first riser failed. This new one is going to look even better!
