Hello Group,

I want to introduce you to my good friend Bob Putnam of Rare Woods.  He just sent me an email regarding a nice supply of Boxwood.  This guy is first class - I have purchased a flitch of Swiss Pear from him along with some Ebony.  This wood is in larger dimensions than most of us need - but I have locally sourced milling operations to reduce my stock to our requirements for ship modeling.  Its a very cost effective way to have a good supply of quality wood.

Thanks, Chris.   I took a look and am impressed.  I've ordered from them before and they do have nice wood.   Have to go dig HMS Visa out of mothballs.
