I am looking to start my third business but am having some trouble locating a very important component that is vital to the success of the company. I am a Freemason and have noticed that every Lodge I visit has really ornate and fabulous woodwork, but in some cases it is the better part of 100 years old and not in a good way! That got me thinking that I could put my skill to work, make a little money, and help out my brethren.
After a little research I discovered that Acacia nilotica is supposed to be the “Sprig of Acacia” which is important in Masonic teachings, so I thought what better wood could I ask for?!? There’s where my problem is, I have found many different species of Acacia but not Acacia nilotica.
Does anyone have any idea where I can find this specific wood in furniture grade quality? Below is a link to the wiki page about the species.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
