20kg, would that be the same as thier 20lb box assortment? If so I have bought several of those boxes from Woodcraft over the years of the exotic woods. Lots of small pieces for pens, watches, clocks, inlays, and toy parts.

Yea, always milled, just small cut off pieces, anywhere from about 4” to 10” long. 2” to 6” wide. 4/4 and 8/4 stock. Usually has Purpleheart, babinga, padouk, red heart, lace wood, even got a piece of ebony one time.

I believe a kilo is 2.2 pounds plus a small fraction.

I’ve picked up odd lot boxes before and always figured that it was a great buy.

But you have to have a need for small pieces.

Hey Pommy … what kind of wood are you looking for ? How much is the postage to the UK ?

I always have a need for small bits of hardwood. I’ll have to look into this.
