    The Blackwood(melanoxylon) is as good as you will see anywhere,consistent colour,radial fiddleback,all from the same provinance,really is stunning(alot of 1/4 sawn material)...and the Mango is beautifully figured as well...

    What sorta dimensions are we looking at here? Slabs? Billets? Boards?

    I'm currently interested in feature pieces suitable for box making and, of course, turning... and although, sadly, I'm not tooled up for larger furniture in my new shed (not everything fits ) I can always cut down to size...
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    I think that this is a great idea and kudos to Brett and MM.

    Unfortunately, I am looking for timber suitable for tables, so the length will be longer than a pallet.

    That aside, if this is successful, perhaps subsequent loads may offer something more suitable for me.

    It's a fantastic offer, and once again, and I am sure I write for everyone, it's a great idea and thank you for the offer.

    Plenty of box-making/instrument making/turning pieces Skew..and given the size restraints of the pallet,this is the sort of material that would be well suited for sending...

    Max length is 1100mm Skew. Other than that, check with MM. Certainly he's got stuff for boxes and spindle turning, possibly (probably) even bowl turning. Have a look at some of the pics in his Mango Stump thread - remarkable stuff. I have one small piece of his less spectacular Mango here if you want to check it for suitability.

    Firstly many thanks Mapleman for your considerable efforts. I am specially interested in turning some mango bowls - the bigger the better. Can you let me know what you have available, thanks, Drillit (John M)

    Default A couple of examples...

    Here are a few samples that MM sent me a little while ago. I've been fooling around with some different finishes over the weekend, and this is the Danish Oil bunch:

    Left - Northern Silky Oak
    Middle - an "average" piece of Mango
    Right - Qld Maple



    Yup, that's the first sunlight in quite some time. Grass is green ain't it?

    For the benefit of those who have already read my first post, I'll reproduce the edit that I have just done here:

    EDIT: It would not be hard to organise a delivery to other parts of Oz. E-go Transport have pretty good rates, so if a few people from one area wanted to sort something out then it would work out pretty well for freight I reckon.

    Cava - E-go can take bigger packages I'm sure.

    E-Go Transport Website
    If you click Depot to Depot, and use Kunda Park as the initiating depot you'll see what I mean about the rates and depot locations

    Nope, I have a seperate detached workshop/shed. The garage is for storing all the carp that I don't want in the shed It's also my timber storage.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    This is a version of the pic from Photobucket, so it should have more detail:
