    So heres some quick rules... Only guess once per person, if no one gets it, I will add a hint then you can guess again. You will get a nice pen blank outta it at the least but will have to be patient with me cutting it up... If it yields good I might send ya two blanks... I'll pay shipping if it's in CONUS, you pay difference if elsewhere.

    Soooo? What is it? Looks curly possibly?

    Woo, that's a nice looking slab! You don't find pieces like that hardly anymore!

    Thank you, Cody! The shiny ripples on the surface of your pic reminded me of similar ones on the one piece of Fordite I have had. (Well, still have - I've been hanging onto it for a while now, waiting for just the right pen to put it on.)

    Yea I was just going to say that, the red layers sure look like "red-lead" at least that's what they used to call it, painted my share of it in my early navy days, basically a rust inhibiting primer... Navy gets a pass on using lead based paint..... very cool looking stuff though.....

    I wouldn't touch any paint with tools without a respirator... Especially the "good" paint .

    @gman2431 - Cody, the package arrived today. Thank you very much! I have in mind what pen or pens I plan to make with it and will definitely share pics when I work with it!
