  • Oldest wood availalble.

    Just found this site via a friend on FB. Incredible wood must see to appreciate. Not selling anything myself just a great site with awesome wood.

    Imagine 1200 year old wood that has been buried for over 50,000 years in your hands....Does not get much sweeter than that.

    That is some beautiful wood and an incredible story of it's age & how it's harvested. However, at $40 per bd ft, I don't see myself making any Christmas ornaments from it this year.

      Priced like Koa is here in the Islands. Sometimes I think some woods are worth more than gold or oil.

        A little cheaper down here for ancient kauri. I am paying $54 for one metre of 200 x 100 (8 x 4) which works out at around US$5 per board foot if my maths are correct. Check out the NZ website for the American supplier at

          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
