Hello guys. I started to make some laminates from the wood I have (oak, cherry, chestnut) and I want to make some more out of exotic wood. I want to ask, where do you get your exotic woods, or any other type of wood? I dont need big pieces, they can be small so I can just make a palmswell or something like that. Thank you already

If you are looking for Australian woods, this guy is a good friend of mine and has an unbelievable stash of beautiful highly figured woods. His prices are very reasonable, but shipping from down Unda is pretty unreasonable. It would be a good candidate for a group buy where a bunch of guys put together a big order and have it shipped to somebody that is centrally located, who can then break up the shipment and send everybody their part.

It's a lot of work, but the best way to get some of this kind of stuff.

His name is George, and his website is http://www.timberssoul.webs.com/

Tell him James sent ya.

Hmmmm... It says shipping is free on up to 5 samples. I chose 5 and it still calculated the shipping price. I can't send it for free

Just got my free 5 pieces in the mail, and I might try laminating for my first try. Or I might just make carries from them they are perfect size for it. Any suggestions?

Thanks going to look now
Being in the UK, wood turning shops are a really good source for bigger pieces. If there is ever a specific wood type you are after drop me a PM. I have lots.

Exactly how Andy put it , uk buyers should go no futher than the fleabay. Pen blanks provide a good square shape to chop and glue amd they are dirt cheap I got 15 purple heart , afromosia and putu jumu blanks for 3.50 shipping included .
