    While in Bandon Or. I visited American Western Exotic Hardwoods where I purchased some fine looking spalted maple pieces. While there is no web site for this place they do sell on ebay. He has a large inventory of woods that may be of interest to bowl makers and the like. I can give you his contact information if you pm me.

    Also, for anyone who hasn't found this site yet: Woodfinder Marketplace

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
