If they moved to the US with those skills they'd have a six-figure income.

I see the unlimited potential...on a grip or wooden buttstock/handguards.

+1. You'd have to enclose it in glass or acrylic otherwise it would be a total bitch to keep the dust out of but it would be an amazing addition to a room

No idea, I'm guessing not as long as one may think.

I do wonder what such a huge slab of Teak goes for........

......given its about $18.00 per Ln ft for 6"x3/4" stock.

Teak is a pretty expensive wood to be doing that with it.

But I've made some AR furniture with mesquite.

I love teak transoms and decks on sportfishing boats.

Not only are the details awsome, but did anybody notice the size of that slab of teak.

That would be a very heavy piece of art.

OK..
If you want to see the quality of the carving. Use your own phot software and zoom in.
