Hello all from sunny Florida, am down here on business and also visiting my sister and her family. Stumbled across a really neat little business that specializes in exoctic woods from Central and South America. There motto is “Precious wood for priceless projects”. The place is run by a gent named Harlan who has a wealth of knowledge on these beautiful woods and a sunny disposition to match. I spent hours with him and learned quite a bit about the woods he sells. I got schooled on the variations of Lignum Vitae. You can find the business at They have a nice inventory of cocobolo and many other species.They ship nationally and internationally. If you need to ask him a question feel free to call him at 727.521.0616 or email at I am encouraging him to join Lumberjocks, he does some fabulous turning work.

I wouldn’t want you to lose too much sleep trying to figure out what to do with all of that. Just send it down here to Alabama and we will take that off your mind. No trouble at all.
