If you new my dad the imperfections fit him to a tee, He is a little rough around the edges

For storing wood question. When its dryed out and i think that is like 10% humidity you wax coat the ends to lock in the humidity. Mine got to dry due to not stored properly.

Thanks for the kind words, He still smiles when he sees it!

How did your Dad react when you gave it to him? My dad and Grandpa are some of the toughest SOB's to walk the planet, and I'll bet they would have welled up.
