Update for all of you patient people.
I received confirmation that the rosewood will arrive in LA this coming Sunday 7/27. After that I still don’t know. If the box is pulled for inspection (likely because I am now considered a new importer) it may be delayed by another two weeks. Once the box is released it will take about a week by truck to get to Denver. Then I need to sort, catalog and take pics of everything.
Then I will be ready to start filling your orders. I still think that you will have your wood in plenty of time to start your Christmas projects!!

Cheers and thanks for your patience.

Is there a chance I can still be part of these massive rosewood lumber distribution?

OK All,
I’m a pretty smart guy but can someone tell me how to add parts 2, 3, 4 etc. to this forum? I did it once accidentally and I just don’t remember how I did it.
Anyway… on to more important things
ETA to Denver is 8/7. I’m just waiting for the “official” paperwork to get the trucking company to release it as soon as it arrives.
Stay tuned.

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.
By the way, David is right
I’m just an old hippie
