Just starting to get into wood collecting. I have a few small samples I have collected from Outback NSW (Australia). Looking to purchase a large-ish set (50-100 samples) so I can start studying them.
Does anyone have standard size samples that they would be willing to box up and ship to Australia? Looking for a variety of hardness and colours.

WANTED: I am new to collecting and have about 150 samples at 25 X 25-50 X 300 mm size. Due to my display, the thickness must be at least 25 mm and length 300 mm. I am very interested in expanding my collection. I still need many common species as well as exotics. Please send a list of what you have available with prices. Thank you!

I grow trees on my farm and own a small sawmill. Im really looking for regular users of wood, rainforest species, especially Australian Red Cedar and others, Hoop Pine and a few Eucallyptus, but I can also supply some unusual species to wood collectors. Many of these trees I have planted myself.

Im looking to sell my ruler making business. I have been making wooden rulers out of Australian and Tasmanian woods for 20 years now and its time to hand over to someone else. I have lots of tools, jigs, materials and equipment and I think its worth $2000. Id be prepared to teach the buyer and give them all my contacts and expertise.

I make my sample into 1 cubes, and am not interested in standard sized samples. I am mainly interested in shrub woods and species native to the US not considered commercially viable. I have a select few native New England shrub-woods and hardwoods available for trade.
