Hey all,

I'm looking for smallish scraps from 1/4" sqaure by 12" long of various exotic hardwoods that are colorful (looking for Purpleheart, Yellowheart, Bloodwood, Padauk, etc.). This is for Jewelry for the LOML, and family gifts. I can also use scroll saw scraps, 1/16" x 1/4" x 12"....1" x 1" x 12", Etc or anything that can be glued together to get those dimensions

I can also use larger dimensioned pieces.

Maybe we can work something out/trade? I have plenty of Mahogany, Clear Cherry, Walnut, and Alder in 1" x 2-4" x 12"

Thanks to all very much in advance,


Matthew

Re: Scraps

It might help if you specify thickness and widths.

I can use anything from 1/4" squared from 2" long to 12" long for the smallest pieces. Then anything that would fit in a priority mail mail box of 12" x 12" x 5" deep.
1/16" x 2" x 12"......1" squared x 12" long.... 1/2" x 3" x 2" to 12" long. Odd shapes that would have any of those sizes or can be glued together to make those sizes. Jig saw scraps that have enough for a round, oval, or straight shape.

Bobby,


In the system, it has me listed at my Utah address with a Utah zip code. The edit options says eastern time, which I have tried to change but say I am not entering the "Where does wood come from" correctly.???

So in my signature I put that I am from logan, Utah and a USU Student to help the confusion. Guess it didn't work as well as I would have hoped.


I have plenty of Clear Cherry, Mahognay, Walnut, and Alder if anyone want to trade a priority box for their scraps of exotics.



Thanks again~!

Re: Exotic Scraps

Thanks Mark,

Those are some bigger pieces, which I can use and many other can use for bottle stoppers/pens, but I was looking for smaller scraps. Cook Woods $29 13lb grab bag is good until the $20 shipping is added for $50....Ouch...

I'm willing to send a BIG priority box of larger stuff for Bottle stoppers, pens, etc in Mahogany, Walnut, Clear Cherry, & Alder for a small priority box of Exotic scraps.

If you go down the page there is a 5lb, 1.5-3" selection for $29 and free shipping.

I just paid $30 for a small flat rate box full of Mad. Ebony, African Blackwood, Pink Ivory, Brazilian Rosewood, Snakewood, Cocobolo, etc offcuts from a Luthier. I plan to use them for inlay and Guitar/Uke tuner buttons. When the stock is selling for $50-$100/bf there's no such thing as cheap scraps. If I would bag the sawdust I'm sure someone would buy it.:gar-La;

I might have some purpleheart I can send you Matt. I'll look when I get home tonight.

Can you mill larger pieces or are you after 1/4" x 1/4" x whatever?
