I want to display the curly oak and tell a little story about it. I was at the local wood supplier in Jefferson City, Missouri named CARDWELL HARDWOODS. I was getting some poplar for various projects and noticed three boards of this curly oak in the office and was admiring them. Knowing that my funds would not allow me to purchase them I stil admired them. After paying for the poplar I went to my truck to leave and there was a 8’ long 5” wide curly oak board. Back in the office I was told that they were giving me the board so I would not drool on the other ones. The owner requested a picture of a finished project using the wood for payment. There will be a Jewelery Box for my wife displaying the wood. I made a picture frame for Cardwells as a gift.
The box is two scraps of the curly oak, some cherry scraps, and the sides are some ash scraps. Now the tie downs will not be a jumbled mess in the truck.
Sorry for the long dissertation but rarely to we come across a merchant that cares for their customers as Cardwell Hardwoods.
Thanks for Looking.
