Default Care package from George

Being a cheeky little bugger, I ask George if he would be having a post xmas/boxing day sale. . . He replied that he hadn't thought of it, but the pendants he had put on IAP were still there at the prices quoted, some six months ago.

So I sent George a list of needs a few would likes and the care package arrived today, after being mailed, from half way across this wide brown land, last Thursday. (Today being Tuesday).

The package arrived well wrapped, it was almost as much fun as unwrapping presents a few days ago

George also thru in some freebies.

Thanks George, another happy customer, reporting in.

G'day my friend,

Happy to know you received your big bag of goodies and that you are pleased.

I try the best I can with making sure the items are received in the same condition as they were sent but, one can never be sure due to ways parcels are treated in transit.

Looking forwards of seeing some of those blanks transformed, shall we...?

I have also some info on that square large Olive blank you like, the weight is 11.2kg as is. yeah, I've told you it was heavy...!

The price freighted I quoted you, is still valid...!

Now, for all the OTHER members, how much do you think a blank like that is worth?

010.jpg011.jpg

How much to you think the price I quoted (shipped within Australia) to our friend Pat, was...?

Give me your both "estimations", the closest to the correct answers will get a gift voucher from me, value AU$50.00

Sorry Pat, you are not allowed to answer the questions for obvious reasons but, are you OK with me running this little "puzzle" on your thread or you prefer me not to and move it away? be honest mate, I'm happy either way...!

Cheers
George

I would say the blank is worth $120.00 American and the price you quoted was $98.00 American.

Can I remind you that this is a blank from Olive trees that were about 160 years old when cut, the blank is almost 12" square by almost 6" thick and off-course well over 11kg and the wood is 19% moisture content, the blank is part of slabs that were processed about 10 years ago and cut into the size is shows in the pics about 5 months ago.

Your values are too low mate, yes I quoted in Aussie dollars and just to give you an idea of the freight cost between our states, the charge will be/is AU$43.30 that alone is more than the blank value you gave, that would be ok for something like Ash, Macrocarpa and many of our Gum species and some others but not this old Olive wood, no sir...!

Camon, I sell my woods at very fair prices, I wouldn't sell any of this old Olive wood if the value was that low. I can sell/have sold fresh Olive wood green logs for AU$5 per/kg, skin and all, as they are cut from the tree.

Sorry to disappoint you...!

Cheers
George
