LOL yes I do like to twist things at times Glen. I can only wish to have Blood-wood available here in my area. I would have to buy an entire lift of it which I just can not justify. I have a load of Bubinga and it looks almost exactly like your blood-wood with a coat of lacquer. Must be the light and angle of the picture. I really like what you built for a checkers table Glen the fit and finish looks superb. I hope the Grand kids put it to good use. Happy New Year if we don't chat before then.

Thanks Derek. I picked all that wood up in New York at West Penn Hardwoods. I drive 2 1/2hrs to meet a good Friend of mine in Erie, Pennsylvania & then another 90 minutes to WPH in Olean, New York once a year. That trip is coming up here within the next 60 days if the weather cooperates.
Looks like Bloodwood from them would run you $132.50 plus S&H for a 10bd/ft minimum order.
