Hmmmmm, 100.00 dollars for a table spoon of walnut. And slow service to boot. Ummmmm, think Peruvian walnut, maybe some TX black walnut or maybe some beautiful walnut milled in the smokies is a much better deal.

I guess I’m just to frugal with our budget, but we use an a__ load of walnut in our shop and I can say 100.00 for a table spoon full of your walnut is crazy.

Yeah, these guys advertise on knife forums all the time too. The amount of money some tiny figured blocks of wood go for is ridiculous… knife scales are popular commodities. We should start buying figured wood, cutting it into tiny rectangles, and charging 10x the value. Seems to be a good business model, somehow.

Yeah, it could be just me, but I don’t see it. Too me it is gouging. I know Woodcraft does that locally here in San Antonio selling small amounts of wood for some crazy price. In fact they will try to sell a small piece of plywood that is sun beaten from setting outside for a crazy price.

The walnut they were selling looked nice, but not any nicer than what I can get at my suppliers. Walnut is truly an amazingly beautiful wood. :-)
