Zebrawood and Teak now live

We broke the 6K and 100 backer barriers last night, so Zebrawood and Teak are now live. I know I can get Zebrawood in wide boards, so it is an option for the Priest case in addition to the Rogue case. I'm not positive whether I can get Teak in the... (Read More)

30mm base question

February 23rd - via:
Over the past couple of weeks, I've gotten a few questions regarding how my case would do with 30mm bases. Since 30mm = about 1.2 inches and the clearance in the case is designed to be a maximum of 1.1", I would have to guess, "not well."  Today I... (Read More)

Bloodwood update
