Ello luv! Top 'o tha day to yeh!
I'm feeling ever so British since I purchased a bunch of English walnut this past weekend. It was an interesting trip - I went because the seller decided to have a fire sale and post the 1" stuff for $1 per bdft; the down side was that most of that material was very narrow and not all that great looking. Apparently it was limb wood, which I later found out on Lumberjocks was nothing to be worried about.
I did purchase one piece of 3" - originally priced at $475, purchased for $68....
Well, anyhow, tally-ho!
