Hallo everyones,
I have many inquiries from LJ’s member about an exotic wood from my country.
All of this kind of wood are cost a fortune in USA, As a LJ’s members i can trade those beautifull wood for only $ 5.00/bdf Ex-my sawmill. some of friends in LJ’s suggest me to use Ups’s service but i believe it will cost much.
I send wood to USA in a container of 20ft, in the end,price is cheap but the importers sell it back with huge price to enduser likes us,

Is there anyones here know how to send wood in small amount with reasonable sending cost ?

Thanks,

Its not wood that cost much but its all about our works,creativity and innovation that make our woodworking valuable,

You have some of the most beautiful wood I’ve seen in a long time! I have a question – on the page with all the different pictures of rosewood, there is a photo on the second row down, in the middle. It’s a purple colored rosewood. I think I have some of that but I’ve forgotten the name – do you know what it’s called?

If it would make it possible for me to get some, I’d be happy to look into how much it would cost shipping via UPS, but I would have to know what town it would ship from. There are other shipping services similar to UPS that I could also check. Let me know what town you would ship it from. I would be glad to pay the shipping charges just to get some of the wood.

Who do you send the containers to here in the U.S.?

I’ve shipped packages via usps internationally. Ups is not feasible, as their international rates are outrageous. Shipping containers are the best bet for sure.

To everyone interested in Deni’s beautiful rosewood. Deni & I have been trying out how to get his wood to us. I live near Denver Colorado which is fairly central. If somebody knows of a cost effective way to get the wood shipped here I am willing to play distribution center at no charge. UPS here in the states should be reasonable. I would have to ask the LJs who are interested to help cover shipping to me and then cover their UPS orders. I’m sure that someone out there knows a way to help us all get some of this beautiful wood. at $5.00 a foot how can we pass this offer up.
Please let Deni or me Al Bibbero – Bibbero@comcast.net know how we can make this happen.

I would love to have some also. Once we determine interest and estimated cost, I will let you know how much I want, but you can definitely count me in. Will it be dried already or will we need to dry it here? I just think its awesome the Rosewood is willing to help other LJs in this manner.

I am definitely in on this “dream” , but I have to wonder if there are any import / export laws to be dealt with, including possibly needing an importers license.. Also , the logistics and cost of transporting the container from wherever it came ashore and unloading it and storage of the contents would need to be considered. In my shipping / receiving experiences to date , the trucking company gave us the first hour of unloading time for free and then jumped up to $100 per hour after that for detaining their truck and driver. Separating peoples orders and UPSing them out would be quite a job in itself. Maybe in the long run it would be cheaper to place our individual orders with Rosewood using the pictures that he posts for us to pick from.

Just trying to keep it real here.

To all,
This brain fart is a work in progress. If we can get an expert to help us with shipping we will work out the logistics after that. I have no idea how to make this happen but I hate to let this opportunity get away. If anybody out there can help…

Hai everyone.
I am living in a remote area trying to contact all of you by using modem on my mobile connected with laptop via bluetooth on both side, sometimes internet connection is so slow,just likes it is now,so i can not reply every of your PM,
All the photos i posted on LJ’s are rosewood (dalbergia latifolia ) except the two bookmatch on first row are mahogany burl,Indonesia origin,not from India,
Indonesia’s rosewood not only has straight grain but it has many kind of figures, colour and very dense as well.
the nearest Ups i can reach is 3hour drive from my place, the city name is Bandung,west java.
the last container of rosewood i sent to USA was for big company in California, and Oackland is the port,and i am sorry that i can not tell you the company name.
Yes i brought a board to Ups before,its was a sample less than 1kg tobe sent to Honolulu,Hawaii via collect shipment and my friend there had to pay for $ 90.00.
Sending cost for 1 cont of 20ft from Indonesia to Oackland is $ 2.600,
Export tax,handling etc $ 4.500,
Wood $ 5.00/bdf x 6345bdf/container $ 31.725
so wood price in USA will be $ 6.11/bdf Ex-import tax. when i ask man who import wood from me about USA import tax,he did not tell me in details, just huge…how much is huge dude…
We need the info of USA import tax so i can make ajustment on wood price.
i accept paypal or anything as long as its safety for all of us.

Thanks All.

I would love to get my hands on some of that fine looking wood, so I’ll just keep watching this to see how this all pans out, I hope someone can figure it out. Thanks rosewood for trying to get it to us no matter what the outcome!

It sounds very interesting opportunity to me. Being the nearest (just a swiming diatance..LOL) to the location of rosewood’s operation base, I may have the advantage of low shipping cost. But the problem is the quantity. There are not many users like me in my country, so I may have overstocking for many many years before I can recover my cost.

This is the opportunity I shouldn’t just watching it gets away. Been thinking to find a way.

Hallo again everyone,
I just got a quotation from my shipper and customs,
Sending cost for lcl ( less than container load ) 2m3 or 846bdf of rosewood from my country via Los Angeles,CA port.is $ 480., availablity days of sending are Mon/Tue & Thu, max 30days, from LA port to Denver,Co 3 or 4 days,
If sending cost $ 480.
wood $ 5/bdf x 846bdf = $ 4.230.
Export tax,handling,etc $ 1.100.
So rosewood price in Denver.Co = $ 5810 divide 846bdf = $ 6,86/bdf Ex-USA import tax.
If anyones here has a better solution please let me know and thanks.

All the best.
