UPS delivered my Gordon's glass from Rosewood Archery to the wrong address.. At least it is one of my relative's and not a stranger.. They called me this morning to let me know they had my package.
Rosewood just got another delivery from Gordon's Tuesday.. I'll will be gluing up a recurve later today using the Gordon's glass, Mike says it is nice and clear. I'm gonna order 20 more pieces if it looks good over my veneers.
Meanwhile the other glass is still in Miami at customs because of a document problem...

didnt get bow glued up..after getting everything ready and doing a dry run I was just too tired to do the glue up..I did take the two 10 inch cut offs from the glass and glued a dark veneer between them..I will check it in the morning.

The two Gordon's Glass 10" scrap pieces with the santos rosewood veneer glued between them is very nice..no visable streaks.. I should have time to glue up a recurve later today, the bow will have olive ash burl veneers under the new Gordon's .042 clear fiberglass.
The XXXXXXXXXs Glass has finally made it thru Customs and should be in my shop this week. I will likely use it for that set of Black Widow 1225 limbs I am building for Rob H.

I did some editing on all my posts....I'm staying with the Gordons Glass, I received 3 different brands of Glass in the mail this week and in my opinion gordons is still the best I have seen.
