The high tide line after a hard rain and the green waste dump should be on at least some of your maps. All the milo I have ever found I got this way. This log yeilded 30+ Concert sets. Amazing sometimes what people throw away. And not to get to philosophical but its equally amazing at what people sometimes dont throw away. Hope the jpegs are not to small.

I love working with milo. Makes a great sounding ukes as well. Nice color in those sets. Milo of any size is much more scarce than koa is. I wish people would realize it's value. The Hawaiian Ali'i did!

Got two on my bench right now. I've only built one that went outside of Hawaii, the rest stayed here. Okay, one set went to one RT, who built a CR and sent it Tasmania. I heard it made an appearance at NAMM.

+1 to Chuck - very valuable, and very nice color in those sets.
