Topic tags/keywords: wenge maple sapele arrow wood products

My wood order just arrived via UPS from Answer Wood Products in Rancho Cucumonga, CA. Some beautiful Sapele and birdseye maple and a smaller piece of wenge.
I have been to the store to pick through their stock, but this time I called in my order and left it up to Dan and Doug to see that I got some nice wood. Boy did they come through for me.
When you order sight unseen, you kinda worry about what you will get. This is my first time and I can see that I don’t need to worry about that in the future. And I’m very satisfied with their pricing as well. Thanks guys. I appreciate your help.
You guys and gals here on the west coast might want to give them a try. Rand

Hey Grizz, get the kraut hot, I got the brats. lol

Yeah, I got an idea for this, but I have two things in progress at the moment and I need to get them out of the way first. Plus we just had a turn in the weather. A cold Arctic front just blew in and the 20-30 MPH winds ran me out of the shop. This dang chartreuse thong just doesn’t block enough wind. Maybe I need to borrow your little red dress. lol
Yeah, chartreuse and red go good together.

Rand,

It looks like really good stuff!

??? Is it Arrow Wood Products or Answer Wood Products?
Do you have a link to their website? (if they have one)

rand they were my favorite wood supplier when i lived in your neck of the woods.
i miss them a lot i cant seem to find the quality of wood out here in phoenix as they had.
when i run out it looks like a road trip to cali. is in order
Doug is a great guy to work with as with all the employees there
don’t forget it is worth the drive once and awhile to ck out what they have in cut offs
this post has made me miss the only thing so far from cali.
here you go joe. http://www.answerwoodproducts.com/

Hey eddy, UPS is cheaper than the gas to get back up the hill. lol I would like to see them post some pictures of their supply and maybe do like Cook Wood does. Put a number on each board and give you a pic of each side. Call Doug and have send you a care package. lol If you come back give me a shout and let me know. Rand
