Apparently the Urban Hardwoods model was an inspiration. He should have no trouble filling the market and I have been surprised more people in this area are not doing this type of product given the nature and size of our local flora.
I visited the owner in San Francisco this summer and they have similar outfits in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
A monster slab cleaned up in the San Fran store was selling for 14K. http://www.urbanhardwoods.com/
WOW!! Thanks for sharing and thanks to Kyle for the additional links. Looks like I may be making a trip to Belmont in the near future. Great work and great ideas. Glad to see folks making a living at something they enjoy. Now I don't feel so alone out here playing with my logs and slabs. :banana:
