    upload_2021-7-25_13-22-53.jpeg Wanted a matching set of Mules so I now I have two. On the pfs, well let’s be real, fork hits do happen so these are 1” gappers. I actually kind of dig them alot.

    The tubed up set are Oak front and back with 1/4” Baltic Birch in the middle.

    The other is Padouk, Birch, Purple Heart, Birch, Padouk. Very pretty but that dust from the Padouk makes almost an ink when combined with 90 percent humidity and sweat.

    Oh and there may or may not be a Purple Heart/Ash set that may or may not be already glued up and in the clamps

      Thank you very much. I’m not sure about the art part though. They’re more like kinda nice daily drivers versus a show car. [emoji23] They have been fun and kept me entertained though.

      All are nice but those Padauk are gorgeous!

      You can actually make a stain from Padauk sawdust and alcohol

      Love the laminated padauk frame !! I hear you about padauk dust being a PIA ... only thing I've found that is worse is cocobolo. Purpleheart doesn't seem to be as bad. My wife has a pile of shirts I've ruined that she won't even wash that are covered in padauk and cocobolo dust.
