Topic tags/keywords: exotic lumber resource

I’m throwing in the towel …. I have developed a constant allergic reaction to wood dust. I have a large amount of exotic woods and many hundreds of feet of wood mouldings. Including lager pieces of jet black ebony .. some as large as 5 ft long, 8 inches wide and up to 3 inches thick, many large clear pieces of exotic wood in 6-8ft lengths and up to 14 inches wide including 2 thick rosewood slabs that are around 4ft x 2ft x 3”. I also have a large amount of ebony, sapele and Bubinga veneer. I would like to move this quick if someone local is interested in making an offer

Laguna 20” resaw band saw with carbide blades and automatic feeder
Large 3 phase variable speed polisher with extra dressing wheels

Wow Allen, that is quite the stash. Wish I was closer to you, I’d be all over that. I’m sure you’ll be getting bombarded with PMs shortly…

This is probably a waste of space, but would you consider shipping a handful of smallish pieces to FL?

Piece it out and sell the wood on eBay. You might be surprised on what you might get. That ebony you have would get allot of interest.
Just start the auction low and keep a reserve that you can realistic live with. You will be happy you did. Just set your reserve at the bottom dollar. Thank that from someone who has sold close to 500 bft of mahogany online a few years back. If you want to take the time to piece it out you will be happy you did.
Trick is to get bunch of auctions going at one time and getting people looking at ll of them,... Most I ever did was

Sorry to hear you have to quit because of the allergies.
I REALLY wish I could help you by purchasing some of your lumber as I live in Orange county but the finances are not there at this time.
I have bookmarked this and I’ll pass the word around at work. If anyone is interested, ill refer them to this link.

I’m interested in getting more involved with veneering. If you
are selling your veneering hand tools, I’d be interested. My
folks have a cabin up there and I may be able to come
up sometime.

As a worker in a hospital, I understand having to quit because of allergies. As a woodworker, it would kill me. Best of luck to you.

Being a disabled Vet and never turned before after I got hurt I found I had allergies pretty bad also. I have to wear a facemask, gloves and full length long sleeve shirts.

I am now doing wood turning again after being in the hospital for 3 months. Please reconsider turning again but buying some good safety equipment.

If you have to sell some things I would love to buy some turning wood and ebony. It is pretty cheap to ship USPS priorty mail 12×12x6 for only $15

All the best
