Well, lately I’ve been searching around the internet for Amboyna burl or Afzelia burl (Makamong), with the intent to cut it into smaller pieces. It seems like I can occasionally find a small block of Amboyna that might make one small box, for around forty dollars. Other than that the price seems to jump into the thousands of dollars for a piece of burl maybe 12” x 12” x 2”, or something like that.
Ali-Baba lists some wholesalers that I’m sure have better prices but, how do you know who to trust?
Has anyone here thought about buying this stuff purely as an investment? I mean sure, it does grow on trees, but not nearly fast enough to keep up with world wide demand. Or cut it up, sell it for pen stock and multiply your investment many times.
