    These bowl corner cut-off pieces would be suitable for jewelry making, ear rings, wooden rings, small laminations, refrigerator magnets, small carvings......or? I have offered these to Shop owners on Etsy, and have given away a few that way......the local High School shop declined.

    There are Ebonys, Exotic burls, domestic burls, mostly highly figured exotic dark woods......I have tossed out most of the light colored wood corners.

    If you can use these for your projects, you can have them for free.....just pay whatever the shipping costs are. When the buckets fill up, I have to toss them out, and I feel it's a shame, if anyone could have used them. :(

    I'm interested! I live in Astoria, OR, if you're within driving distance, otherwise, a large priority mail box crammed full will work. How do we go about this?
    Rick Crawford, I'm in the directory.

    Not sure about postage to Puerto Rico, but stand by, and I'll find out! :D
    OK, guys......send me your mailing address (Or, in a PM, if you want to keep it private), and I'll ship out a priority flat rate USPS box shortly. No worry about paying for the postage right now......you can snail-mail a check or do a PayPal payment, once you get the box. Looks like the price to ship is $17.60, or it might be $19.95......I'll let you know. It's been about a year since I last shipped one of these boxes......

    I shipped a box to a lady in the UK, who really wants these chunks of wood for her miniature doll house furnishings.......too bad, because she's really good at what she does, but it turned out to be much too expensive to ship across the pond for her. Another Etsy shop owner never did pay me back.....:mad:.....and, a couple more are making jewelry with the cut-off corners........

    If there is anyone else interested, send me your address.

    I'll keep this posting open for the time being........:D

    Odie, I have been mailing several boxes of the Holy wood. The large flat rate box now goes for 19.95. Same price to Puerto Rico, I sent some woods there in exchange for Lignum Vitae.

    OK, thanks Emiliano.......great trade.....Lignum Vitae is some pretty nice stuff, when you can find it at a decent price!

    Rick/Carlos.....It might be a few days before I get it together and ship a couple of these boxes......so, stand by! :D

    Hi Odie, I'd like to get a few pieces.

    Do you use the Venmo payment app on your phone?

    I don't know what happened to the pictures, but the text should be sufficient to help you figure it out. I need to replace the missing pictures.
