Just got back from Portland Or. with some Doussie 8/4 planks. Could not believe the stock theyhad, price was fair in my opinion $10 bd/ft. Was a little concerned about crossing border back into Canada, but no problems at all. I have bought a large amount of exotic woods on line which was shipped by post with no problems except cost!
