Thank you.

TCT Dalmann is the Sawmill in Mozambique website which has pictures of the mill etc and my website is www.dalmannuk.com which covers the timbers but also gives coverage to the reforestation programme and socio economic uplift schemes introduced to help the local population.

I will post some pictures of interest in the near future




QUOTE=rockb;1918333]Hi Rob, good to have you here on IAP.....if you want pen info, it's all here. Lots of guys with lots of knowledge and willing to share. Your Mozambique adventure sounds really interesting. I'm sure a few pics of the sawmill, etc. would be really appreciated. We like that kind of stuff. : )[/quote]

G'day and welcome from South Australia.

I'm familiar with some of the Mozambique timbers, my first wife (ex) was born in Mozambique from white Portuguese people and her parents her brought a fair amount of solid wood furniture with them when they left in 1974.

Is great to see a more controlled harvesting of the native trees and you representing the old times where things were all done manually employing so many local workers, I could count 60 on that group pict, I may have missed some "hiding" behind others, they are very shy people, I know...!

It would be most interesting for you to consider cutting some of your woods into pen blanks and offer their sale here on IAP, there are vendors such as myself but there is room for everyone particularly when you offer woods that are not seen in Australia and I believe in the USA, I will have a look at your distributors page shortly so that I can have an idea where your woods are going to.

Best of luck

Cheers
George

Thanks for your welcome George and for taking the trouble to look at our websites.
Thankfully after some rigorous campaigning by TCT-Dalmann and a few other concessionaires (timber) the Mozambique Government, last month, legislated stopping all export of logs. Now all exports must be processed/ semi worked prior to export. This will help prevent the wanton pillaging of the forests, mainly by greedy Far East traders.
Once I've settled in and found my way around the site I will offer pen blanks for sale. I currently have an ad running on eBay USA offering a bulk sale of 100 blanks (10 different species x 10) just to try an assess the market but have been disappointed that the ad has only been viewed 10 times in a week?? Must be doing something wrong :-)

Will keep in touch.

Take care

Rob
