« Part 18: Who painted the timber purple... Part 19 of Wood Gloat series Part 20: Spalted Walnut »

I have three commissions on the books… this week I went down and picked up the rough sawn boards of New Guinea Rosewood that I needed to make … a large bookcase, a smaller bookcase for DVD and CD… and a tallboy [chest of drawers].

I purchased 60 lengths 2.1 metres long…[7 ft] which when dressed down, will measure 125 by 25 mm [1 by 5 inch..]

For all the box/toy makers out there… I will have small peices that could be useful to you… so give me a bell..

I can also supply full lengths [rough sawn or dressed]

A full service is now being offered… dressing… cutting to size…your timber or mine..let me know your needs…certainly cheaper than going to the Big Box Stores.. and a better variety…

Very gorgeous wood. It would probably be a little pricey shipping to here though

Wish I was over the big Pond so that I could take advantage of some of your great deals.

WOW! look how nice and straight that is.

For a challenge you need your hardwood to look like the pine lumber at the big box stores…. random widths and shaped like a mutant banana…..I mean jeeze, anybody can make nice projects with boards like that!! LOL :-)
