    I got my block 2352 today and it's beyond expectations, bonus that it is easily big enough for 2 handles!

    It never ceases to amaze me that something so beautiful as these woods occur in nature.

    Sorry I couldn't resist, I just find it somehow funny that someone from Redwood City, California, is having a hard time getting redwood. Must be my inner kid!

    Ha... I have three nice redwoods on my lot but it is much easier nowadays here in Bay Area to invent a Facebook than to get a permit to cut the tree
    I am not planning to cut them anyway

    Welcome! Small world my dad an MD stayed for a few years in Redwood City running United airlines medical dept at SFO. Don't want to cut into Burl source business. If Mark can get you some all the better;otherwise, i can send you a piece that should make you a nice handle if that's what you needed.

    Btw serious about the not cutting into his business. Mark is a great guy. It is wood I bought from him. Its about 4 1/2 inches long if thats enough length for you once you add a ferrule. He already had a bad day today. You could pay him $40 for my block and I will send it to you free shipping. I am just trying to help out. Might cheer you both up. Anyway just an offer.

    Certainly,no problem was just extending the kindness extended to me here. Hope you enjoy the forum. Great group of people here. I was doing the send money to him to not cut into his business and do something nice. His bad day was a less than cordial customer. All the best. Nice to meet you.
