Perfect choice in my opinion.

Thank you, I think some people are over concerned about the few pin knots in the wood.

Don't want to fight about what grade the wood is or isn't; just thought some people would be interested in the progress.

It's sometimes hard to tell on dry wood, but if the definition of AAA is 75% or more figure and stripe, it looks the part to me.

The shaping is coming along nicely. What kind of pore fill and finish do you anticipate, or is that a wait-and-see?

It is going to get a high grade gloss polyurethane, then sand down, and repeat until no shiny grain indentations are left. Then it will be time for nerveracking wrap around checkering, about 1/3 coverage, dont know if I can pull it off, but that's the plan.
