Thanks for the interest in the rosewood.
Here is the story so far (this may take a minute).
Our friend Deni, in Jakarta Indonesia, is putting together a shipment for us but I am not going to commit until I get soft orders for at least half of the order. The shipment will be 846 board feet, which means that I need to offload 400bd ft.
Check out the images of the wood at http://picasaweb.google.com/deniirawan66/Deni?feat=directlink
The lumber will be rough sawn 4/4, 6-8 in wide, random length.
Due to customs regulations we would need special permission to get thicker than 4/4 (25mm) and I just don’t have the resources to work through special paperwork.
A couple of people have asked if they can select from the pictures that Deni has posted but since the load will be stacked randomly I can’t promise that. If that is a deal breaker I understand just let me know and I will take you off the list.
I will do everything that I can to get people what they want but since I am not making any money on this I can’t invest huge amounts of time with packaging. You WILL get a beautiful selection of lumber and I will keep matched sets together/
The cost will be $9.00 bd/ft to LJ members. You will have to cover the UPS cost. I don’t know what that will be but I have received small 20-30 ft orders and the cost was reasonable.
I am going to set up a PayPal account once we really put this into play. That will protect you and me.
I won’t require and $$ until I have the wood and you place a firm order.
In the meantime please spread the word.
