rstaight ... I stand corrected.  Federal Statutes have changed since I was younger.  Businesses can refuse to take cash at all, if they so choose.  They can refuse large bills.  

The law now states that they have to accept US dollars and coins ... but then goes on to say they do NOT have to be physical, but can be electronic only.

And now I know.

 

 

Vicente ... I truly did not even go there in my mind's eye.  I don't see grain, or any pattern that looks like wood.  I do like the colors, though ... and the design of the knife.

Ah ... I should've figured that.  I've got a few pine burls.  The amount of sap in them makes them unsuitable for stabilizing.
