Thanks for the kind words.

You know... I admit to being hesitant about ordering wood and shipping it from Australia (where George is) to the US (where I am). But while the shipping is higher, but it's not that much higher when taken in the context of a larger order, say north of $50 for example. The delivery time was only an extra couple of days longer than what I experience with eBay. And then you consider how much money you spend on equipment and other supplies... the extra fifty cents shipping on a burl is probably not where I'd find an fifty cents to save in my undertaking. The experience has me wanting to explore other "out of country" blank providers also.
