You don't have to buy a vowel, LOL..
The wood I used for this build is a West African hardwood called Bubinga. It's one of my favorite woods to work with, and sort of my "signature wood". This particular piece was a quarter sawn piece that I laminated together. Not real heavy on figure, but exceptional strength. Janka hardness is 2,410 lbf. I figured I would build a "big brother" to the sporter I built last year. I used a flat sawn piece for that build that had beautiful figure...
