    I just contacted a rare wood dealer here and ordered some boards.
    15 x 10 x 2 cm each.
    Now I'm going for serious buiding. The names, respectively: freije, freijo, muirapiranga, roxinho,
    maracatiara,maracatiara, cabreuva, cabreuva, unknown (he is sending as a bonus, as he don't know what it is)
    teca, teca, supupira, sucupira.

    Got some Z-poxy finishing resin too. And the best epoxy glue on Brazil, Araldite, 2 kg!
    Oh! And 3 mm plates of aluminum too!!!!
    Wait for me....

    I totally understand your excitement. Today I found out a Shop that specializes in exotic wood was opening by my house. So given the current state of thought I'm in I'm guessing you may be thinking ,"Yesss. Mwhahahahaha."

    Very cool. I recently naught some Brazilian cherry. Jatoba is its more official name I believe. But I really liked the color of it. Can't wait to work with it, and I deffinetely was thinking of you when I bought it.

    Thats a beautiful collection of timber BV

    Is it dry and ready to work, I hope so and I think the finished sling will look real nice.

    Can't wait to see your first creation from these beautiful exotics. I'm sure it will be a worthy creation. I wonder, will any of this wood be destined for a lucky recipient in the 2013 Christmas Trade???
