    Default Boutique timbers - new website!

    Many woodies on the forums, have bought some nice timbers from Mal Ward over the years. Greg and I have helped to give him an on-line presence.



    It's early days. We need a better pic of Mal, need to tidy up some writing, and get the domain name sorted, but it's starting to come together.

    Feel free to send me a message or post any suggestions or comments.

    Mal's got electricity and phone!
    When'd that happen?

    Seriously, you won't buy better and those who have met Mal know what a terrific bloke he is.
    One of life's little pleasures is touring the woodstacks with him.
    Glad to see the website up and happening.

    Looking good, I like the news letter idea too, even though I talk to Mal on a very regular basis the new letter will be very good.

    I'll add a link on my site now.

    looking good! I think the photo gallery really gives a feel for the premises and tough life out there. Of course the timber speaks for itself.

    Default blog

    Sebastian,
    Just checked your blog....... Latest thoughts Nov 09?
    Anyway Thanks for the comments, though I guess the jury is still out on the Qld Walnut 10mm boards? Could you use them after the split?
    I've got some dry inch boards, 10" wide, 1 metre long here now. They are backsawn, yet one board has developed a split as well. Good colour though with some sapwood.

    Anyway..... Have I read your blog incorrectly, are there later up and down thoughts?
    How about some photos of your work!

    Regards
    Greg

    Default Thanks Dan. New blog update managed!

    Training wheels perhaps, but we have managed to update the website with some recent photos and Dan can now rest in peace.
    Some beautiful shots of wide flamed Mackay cedar slabs and red cedar boards.
    I'd like to know if the update sent emails automatically to anyone?
    And....Many Thanks Again Dan.

    Greg

    Looks good. Making progress now.

    Feedburner, the program that emails out the RSS feed, only emails once a day... so give it 24 hours to see if it works.

    Looks good. Should we limit it to one post on the front page? Or have it so that you can see several like it is now.

    I'll log in later and make the font slightly larger.
