    Great Vid, Thanks.

    Great intro. We should all take heed of his comments about how so many of the woods he handles are becoming “somewhat limited” in supply. Translate that into “at the rate we are harvesting in ten years it will all be as expensive as teak”. Keep up the good work.

  3. Bill Bouldin says:

    Great information. Thanks!

  4. Ken Sloan says:

    Excellent introduction. How about a similar effort for veneer stock?

  5. Larry Cheek says:

    Really informative and useful.

    I’ve bought a ton (an exaggeration, but just barely) of sapele from Edensaw and have used it not only on my boat but also for furniture. It’s my favorite hardwood—exquisitely beautiful and varied grain, rich color when varnished, and easy to shape.
