Massive clearance sale…

It appears that I have too much timber… according to SWMBO… and being in the market for a Laser Engraver… I have decided to have a massive clearance… nearly all the timber I have in stock will be sacraficed for the greater good… more room to buy more timber…lol… and room for the new laser as well as part funding of the new purchase…

Unfortunately this sale will be for those close enough to come out and pick up the timber… sadly no delivery…

Partial list of timbers.

European Wild Cherry in shorts.. 500 mm long … mainly 30 mm thick and up to 80 mm wild. Several thousand pieces.. going out @ $3.00 per board foot Discount for bulk…

European Walnut… ends of slabs.. various lengths to 600 mm approx and 400mm wide.. most 40 odd mm thick… some very nice grains… $5.00 to $10.00 per piece. 100 or so pieces.

The rest are different amounts and sized..something for everyone…

Camphor Laurel,

Silky Oak,

Queensland Maple,

Small slab of Huon Pine,

Moreton Bay Fig slabs,

Swamp Gum Boards,

Virgin Hoop Pine Boards,

Some New Guinea Rosewood.

Lots of different exotics in small amounts.

Ring me on 0427 77 58 77 to find out if I have what you want…

All timbers that are for sale will be well below cost…

I’ll be right over!

... as soon as I can figure out how to get there! LOL

Sounds like a good plan… to get that nice Laser…

Will you be able to etch Head Stones with nice designs & Pictures, etc…??
If so, that’s another way to help pay for it.
I’ve seen some of them… and they are SO COOL! (I know they’re expensive… didn’t bother to ask)

Harry, in or near Perth, might be interested in some of your stuff!

Thank you.

Cruel, old friend, listing such select timbers to only those who can come & get it.
Makes me want to buy a big boat ! lol

I can’t wait to see what magic you produce with a laser!

I appreciate the thought Joe but unfortunately Queensland to Perth is about 3600 Km or in your language 1950 miles, just that bit too far!

Wow, Larry, it sounds like a great opportunity for those lucky ones who are close enough to you. I hope it goes well because I want to see what you do with the laser. Good luck on that too.

… sadly no delivery…

You’re right Larry, that makes me very sad. If I’d still been living in “Bris Vegas”, I’d have already been over to see you.

If you change your mind about putting boxes in the mail, please drop me a line.

Can you hold off on that sale for a little while, Larry old buddy?

Let’s see now, get my buddy’s canoe, hop into the Red River, from there to the Mississippi, then down the coast to Tiera del Fuego and hang a right…

How long do you think it’ll take me? (sigh)

Good luck with the sale. Just remember, if you want the laser without SWMBO throwing a tantrum, tell her it’s needed to make something for her.

For those not into a certain barrister who practiced out of the Old Bailey, SWMBO = She Who Must Be Obeyed. It refers to the missus.

To think some of that was almost mine with free shipping to Europe. I shall never forgive my brother for not making it over to your place before his container left.
