While on a trip with a fellow woodworker to Portland Oregon. We found this exciting treasure, it is Gilmer Wood Company. They have all sorts of exotics from all over the world and have it in sizes from pencel blocks to logs . The owners are very friendly and full of information on the types of wood. So if any of you fellow woodworkers are in the area I highly recommend a visit, you want be disappointed. My personal favorite was Snake Wood. PS bring lots of money for this stuff is not cheap.
