If you don't follow my Facebook page, you should . . . Just click on the banner above. Because I can do so quickly from the iPhone attached to my hip, it's there that I first post new shipments and burls that I'm cutting.

I have processed (though not photo'd) most of the first of two shipments (Red Mallee, Brown Mallee, Yellow Box and Coolibah Burls). Most of what I have photo'd is on my business Facebook page and here on the website. With the seemingly endless horrid weather we've had for the past 3 weeks, hark to predict when I'll he able to finish processing the larger shipment. Click HERE to go to the SEP 2015 Shipment QUICKLINKS and HERE for the AUG 205 Shipment

I have processed all but the Birdseye Lace Sheoak boards of the 2nd shipment and posted it here on the website.

A note about how to best use this site . . . the font I use is Bradley Hand ITC . . . if it appears like Times New Roman on your computer, you likely don't have the font installed (try installing). . . my laptop is a widescreen, so my page size is 1280 x 800 . . . the front and reverse sides of burl caps should appear side by side . . . if not, I recommend changing your screen resolution to best view this site.

HOW TO ORDER . . . Contact me by email or by phone at 757.816.5622 to purchase (or setup a time to visit). VISA/Mastercard and Discover gladly accepted. You may also pay via bank transfer or by PayPal (you do NOT need to be a PayPal member). Of course, I'll also accept cash, or a check.
