Now you’re just rubbing it in. :( ;)

Very nice work. I saw Andy’s work and even Charles Neil approved. This also looks like he’d give his seal of approval. :)

I was going to post a couple bundles on the Bay
I want others to be able to have this wood and see what they can do with it
I will not run out myself and do not need it all

I’ll bite, what kind of dye and what’s the process, if you don’t mind telling?
I might like to get a bundle or two

I will get a weight of a bundle

I want to say
I will not be high grading these bundles
I will not open them because I know what’s in them (opened a few) and if I did open them nobody else would get any
I would keep them all

$614 to ship, and that’s without customs clearing. :(

I used to live on Vancouver Island, that would have made it so much easier.

I just went under FedEx’s LTL, as I’ve never booked a shipment before for a personal purchase. Would UPS, or someone else have a better rate?

Why in the world area you looking at LTL? That’s for bundles of lumber, palletized freight. These are 7”x21”x1/8” and go small package
If you ever do have a need for ltl send me a message,I live and breathe logistics and get good rates
