OK the cat is out of the bag. I received the Rosewood on Friday. It took me two days to unload, sort and sticker it all.
I had hoped to keep this under wraps for a few more days while I get my act together but oh well, lets rock and roll.
Man is this stuff beautiful. I would like to ask you all to be patient with me. I am spending my days looking for a real job and filling orders by night.
MMH has been a great help getting me set up on Pay Pal so I can receive electronic payments from all of you. My plan is to work down the list that I have from those of you who placed orders. I will make an invoice and send it to you via e-mail. I still do not have e addresses from some of you and I need that in order to send you the invoice. Once you get an e-mail followed by an invoice from me that you agree with, submit your payments to me via the Pay Pal system. This is the only way that I will be able to make this work.

Sounds like part of the work is done.

just got home from my roadtrip to Denver to pick-up my portion of the wood candy.

I echo Bibb’s comment…this stuff is georgeouuuuuus!

Bibb had the pieces neatly sorted by length in stacks that filled his garage and I kid you not when I say that I would have taken every square inch of the stuff…but Bibb made me quit loading boards in my Suburban.

Thanks to Deni and Bibb for al their hard work. All Lumberjocks should be thankful for their hard work.

I repeat my earlier comments, this is a wonderful application of the community atmosphere that Martin has created for us here.

I can’t wait to start making sawdust.
