This slab dropped off the saw this afternoon.  My first thought was "There is gonna be a great cab here!".  Upon closer inspection I realized I could not improve on this one by cutting it up.  It will be polished as a display piece.

Yes, that's a no cutter for sure.  I'm getting lots of those now and in fact I would rather have them now than a cut up piece.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Yep. Nice one. I often say I can't cut one "until we get a better one", but we probably still have them all because each one is unique.

That banding is neat - looks like it can't decide whether it's water level or not - looks like it's got some nice shadow too. Cool!
