dogwood?

Long time reader, first time writer.

I am working on a pulpit for our church and I was looking to add an inlay. Dogwood is a symbolic wood to the Easter story, quite interesting if you look it up. What I was wondering was if anyone knew any good way of getting a hold of a block of it to inlay with. I have gone to the local woodworking store and didn't get very far. Being that I only want a block and not actual boards I am hoping that it will be easier to get a hold of.

Thank you for any thoughts.

You might go to www.woodfinder.com to find a supplier near you.

Try woodbarter.com. It's another woodworking forum that you can buy and sell wood.
Good luck

How big of a "block" are you looking for and where are you located? I have a couple peices from a tree I cut in my yard last spring. That are something like firewood size and probably fairly dry by now been under a tarp under deck for a while. I'll check and see if this would be usable for something like an inlay.I would be willing to send to you if you cover shipping cost.

You can likely find a chunk on eBay as well. And if you don't find the dimensions you need, try contacting a seller who has dogwood up for auction. I've found that many eBay'ers who sell wood are more than happy to sell you a custom sized piece. I've acquired several pieces that way, including some beautiful custom sized pieces of staghorn sumac.

I am just wanting to inlay with it. So probably 8x5x1 or somewhere in that vicinity

Sorry what I have is not hardly that big. It is also split pretty bad so I don't think an inlay with it is possible.
