Sorry for the delay Blue......price would be $14 per metre roughsawn.... thats for 150mm by38mm...I can dress it free if you want......so your total would be just over $200 Oz dollars . I will get a ball-park figure for frieght in a few days....

and dont forget customs, vat etc.

should be ok with small packages, but once its a palett it can get more complicated.

yeah, I would guess one board worth should be fine...

my paletts have been opened and they even cracked 3 board in half just to see if there are any cigaretts hidden inside.
was the first time the harbour customs had to deal with wood from asia, made them extra worry :-)

I got plenty of wood left in the UK & Germany to be sold.

If anyone knows of another UK supply please let me know.Ive used some before (run out) but I cant afford the rooted origin prices and Id be interested in Elongata rather than Tomatosa.

hey matt - rooted origin is probably the only business selling it - unless theres somewhere in the phone book between "rocking horse shite" and "unicorn horn". if you find anywhere, let me know

Yeah I know its rare but what I paid was a hell of a lot less, if someone can sell it and still make a profit then its must be doable. Ive got a mate with a container business so Im looking into finding a good source. If anyones interested let me know, not into making money out of it just getting a load of good wood over here.

I got mine from Christian ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Great wood, very square/straight, no cracks, notts etc, and very easy to deal with, no hassle.

Make your choises really

If you rip the wood with a fine kerf blade 1.3mm. you can get four pieces 150mm x 5mm from the 30mm plank.
Two planks = hollow wooden board including rail strips.
whats the problem?
