New Sponsor
Please Welcome "Wood Project Source" as a new sponsor of MSW

Please welcome and thank Wood Project Source for becoming a sponsor of Model Ship World.  WPS supplies milled wood sheets and strips along with carving blocks for many hobbies.  Their specialty is Alaskan Yellow Cedar Sheets and Carving Blocks.  Other species like Yellow Heart, Purple heart, Butternut, Applewood, Dogwood and Mahogany are soon to follow.


 


They also carry the staples for our hobby like Boxwood, Swiss Pear and others.  They are just finishing up their new website so please have some patience with them as they continue adding more wood species and products to their online store.  They have many more than I listed.


 


I have personally bought from them many times as they are close by and I gotten to know the owner.  I have bought some Yellow Cedar and Boxwood from them and will say that I am very happy with the quality of the wood.  They have fantastic prices and they are the lowest I have seen for some wood sheets.


 


Please join me in welcoming them as a sponsor of MSW.


 


Visit their site and check them out.  I am grateful they decided to become a sponsor and didnt hesitate after I asked them about it.

They are in central New Jersey.   They dont have a physical store.  He is a member of the a tree commission or conservany or something and gets a lot of his wood from those operations.  For example, after Hurricane Sandy he collected a ton of Dogwood, Cherry, and Pear and apple...from fallen trees.  Also has dealings with the local tree farmers and orchards.

Cherry and Maple sheets and milled strips are now available.

 

I know this because I am building his site for him.....I bartered for wood.  He isnt the kind of guy to build his own so I am taking care of it for him and you probably notice the similarity to my own.   Anyway....as he gives me new updated wood info and availability I will add them to the WPS website and let you guys know.   

 

I hope you give them a try.

Thank You very much for the well-wishes and welcome.   Chuck is showing me around the site tonight.  Thanks to each one of you who have placed an order through my website recently.  Hope I dont screw things up too badly here.  He tells me I cant really break anything on Model Ship World so here it goes.

 

I would like to let all of you know that I just added two more woods to my site which are now available for ordering.   I now carry Purpleheart and Mahogany.  I will be adding many more as time goes by.  So please visit my site often.  If you need any wood I have not yet added to my store just send me an email.

 

I would also like to extend a Holiday discount to all of fine people on MSW.  Please take 10% off any order from now until the end of December.  Use the coupon Code MSWWPS10 at checkout to get your ten percent discount.

I am not sure when I will have a chance to add them to my site. Or more accurately, when Chuck can add them to the site for me.  If you don't see something listed, the best thing to do would be to email what you are looking for.  Send me an email with the size blocks you are looking for and I will check what I have on the shelf.  If I have to cut the carving blocks for you that you need, that wouldn't be a problem either.  My email address is woodprojectsource@gmail.com

 

Thanks

I just finished laser cutting the Yellow cedar he dropped off yesterday.  The Alaskan Yellow Cedar is such a wonderful wood to laser cut.  The parts are for a second barge I am building which will be made entirely out of the yellow cedar.  I hope to have pictures real soon but I am really enjoying working with it.

If you are looking for a light golden/yellow wood that is easy to work with I do recommend you give the yellow cedar a try.   The top board has some Wipe on Poly on the end.    It makes teh color come out nicely. I should have the planking done this weekend so you guys could have a better look at teh stuff as part of a model.  :)

I got to ask.. Roman.. are you ok?  

 

I'm curious but not frantic yet. I ordered last Wednesday, sent a follow up email about a mistake on my order.  I've heard nothing back yet except the receipt for my order and from Paypal on the payment being made?
