    That looks sweet, I'd love to roam through that and have a closer look... I got about 30 pounds back from K&G a few weeks ago and the next box is almost full.

    Just wondering: Do you guys see a quality difference between WSSI and K&G? I have just used K&G lately because they were faster, more responsive, and easier to reach. Maybe I was just unlucky, I had a hard time getting a hold of Mike the last few times I tried. I thought both were good but I never compared wood treated by them directly.

    Never used K&G, so don't know. WSSI has been good to me. I fill up a box, send it to them and two weeks later they call asking for my credit card #. (I give them Stephan Fowler's... don't tell.) I'm pretty sure they use a different resin and/or heat setting, but it would be interesting to cut one piece in half, send one to K&G and send one to WSSI and compare quality, etc...

    I have not sent any to K&G although I have used a few pieces that were done by them. I know the resin they use is slightly different, because some woods stabilized by K&G aremore reactive to certian chemicals than WSSI. I use WSSI because I have always had good results and Mike lets me know if there are any issues. Sent him that batch on april 19 and got it back on may 9 priority mail both ways. 20 days total 4 for shipping and 2 weekends makes 12 days which works just fine for me. There will be more work for Mike soon.

    Here is a small Black Locust burl that i got my hands on. Not exactly the most well known or used wood, but it is 2 years dry. The guy i got them from has a portable saw mill and will have them cut up for me hopefully sunday Thought i would get it up here for you guys to peek at
    Oh...btw, it is 16 feet long and 34 inches in diameter without the burls.
