Many Small Steps
(and a few big ones too)
Big Steps
There have been a lot of small steps forward and not very many big steps forward regarding the arrival of new stocks over last few months. In particular there is a container that is quite late from Paraguay containing lignum vitae (palo santo) and Lemonwood and another late import from Cameroon containing ebony, some other West African favourites and a new wood to us called Black Limba, destined for electric guitar production, both several months late and with lots of customers inconvenienced as a result.
These two containers will arrive in the not too distant future but I will not give an ETA until I am sure they are steaming up the channel. Do get in touch if you'd like to be kept up-to-date on their arrival.

The small steps have been good ones
Here is a list of some of the more interesting new arrivals:
  • Mother of pearl and abalone for inlay work
  • Mediterranean Cypress Flamenco guitar back and sides sets
  • Birds eye maple lumber
  • Genuine Indian rosewood lumber and squares
  • Some big Steamed Pearwood boards
  • Some genuine Macassar ebony
  • Olivewood turnery discs and squares and some lumber
  • Spalted beech turnery discs and squares
  • Some more Spalted beech board stock this time and currently kilning
  • A ton and a bit of choice big olive and ripple ash cutting now for turnery stock including some huge salad bowls
  • Purpleheart lumber
  • Some lovely 2” and 4” lime for carvers.
I am reminded as I write this list of Bruce Forsyth and the Generation Game. I cannot think why, perhaps I’m overtired!
Don't hesitate to contact me now to enquire about any of the above, contact details right or click here for details.
