Hi, I am new to your site and thought I would share that I am a wood sculptor msbryant.com and due to the economy, I am selling off some of my black walnut burl and figured slabs.

The wood has been out of the ground in burl or log form for 8 yrs so, when cut some has moisture to it.

All end grains are waxed on all wood.

Do you have an inventory available online? Pictures maybe? Also.. looks like you have some evidences of injection attacks on your site..

Hi Dan,

No inventory online just sculptures. I cut the burls and figured wood when I can, I presently have around 70,000 lbs of burls and many tree trunks , none longer than 5ft and my saw will only cut a max of 32inches wide.

I tried to enter pictures ,but obviosly it did not take.

Burl (nice burl) 4.50lb

figured walnut 8.00 brd ft

give me some sizes and I can get a quote from ups frieght! Although shipping has gone up they give me a good rate delivered business to business and if you dont need a lift gate it would be about 70 dollars less? I have shipped many things out east that were Big and fragile… slabs would be wrapped with cardboard and strapped to long pallet… ok, going to go cut up a 900 lb burl while its nice….

thanks for all your feedback!

I might have to hold off for now.. at least until I get a few more projects finished up. I’ll keep this topic favorited in case you need to liquidate or I have some openings.. Just out of curiosity.. is that a full size step ladder in the background of the picture above?

Hi, I have just looked at your website. Wonderfull sculptures I must say. I just thought you might like to know your site may have been messed with somewhat. The pics are fine but there is numerous mentions of anna farris`s nipples and some random text .
