So this is my second new wood thy I've made a tamper from. This is Granadillo wood. I hadn't heard of it before until yesterday, and now I have a new tamper made from it. It's quite pretty once cut and actually doesn't smell too bad, like some other hardwoods I've cut do.

:mrgreen: yep. Fluffy was a good unicorn. But now he's dead. Skull makes a great cereal bowl, though. And you can use the horn for a handle.

Hahaha, yeah, well, you gotta work with what you have. After what we called the "Rainbow Sea Incident", I had plenty of a stockpile to begin working my trade. Once Anthony stopped crying over the blood bath, he helped me gather enough horns that I should be set for a while. Proceeds fully devoted to buying more Black Frigate, course!

Very nice as usual! I'm loving the explosion of new Tampers everyone is making.
