    Anyone in Michigan - Rare Earth Hardwoods in Traverse City is selling everything - wood, fixtures, computers etc. Not sure what they have left, a couple weeks ago I was there and got 30% off. They will have an auction Aug. 19 for what ever is left.

    Yeah I wasn't that impressed with the color of the bloodwood. Maybe the color will come out with sanding. I wasn't going to buy the Padauk, but I looked at the bloodwood and thought I may need it....

    You are doing just fine... =) Jatoba, Birch, Red Gum, Yellow Heart, Padauk, Bloodwood, Tennessee Red Cedar

    I picked it up at Crosscut Hardwoods I think the total was around $260 =(. I don't really like trips to the lumber stores so I try to stock up for awhile. The last time I stocked...

    Great looking wood haul. Must have set you back a few bucks! My bloodwood looks like your Padauk - dark red. Where did you get it?
