  • 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.

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

          Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house.
