    Special Requests - Make them here

    I get a lot of special requests and I think some get overlooked or I misplace the contact information.
    This makes me look like I don't care or don't take people serious. Which is not the case.
    Weekly there are a number of phone calls, emails and PMs from the different forums.
    I thought if I posted a thread here it would give me a place to refer to telling me what new woods I need to get as well as a place I can go to so I know who to contact when I get the special stuff back from stabilizing.

    With your help I can become more efficient as well as start getting different woods that you might not be able to find otherwise.

    If you make a post here with a special request it is not a commitment to buy, but a place to let me know that you think you would want to get a piece or two of that type of wood if you like the way it looks. I am not looking for posts like you should start selling such and such. But more like stuff you think you might want. I hope I am making sense here. Maybe you will see someone make a post like "I want some stabilized Black Palm". If you let me know with a post here that you do as well, that can speed me up getting some.

    If there is something you want, that I don't want to carry in my store, I might be able to tell you a good place where you can get it. A lot of us wood guys share information and look at each other as having a common interest instead of as competitors.

    I have a piece of maple, quilted on one half and spalted on the other, really cool, and I can't find it. I have a gyuto in process that needs it. I want more.

    not a type of wood but a cut. Wa handles are actually pretty small compared to most of the block sizes available, however often just big enough that you cant get two handles per block. If you were able to use some "scrap" to get one wa handle block or able to "stretch" the dimensions of certain blocks to get two handles, everyone wins.
