No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
I recieved several more orders today for pens made from this wood. I'm going to place another order from PSI and not pay for exhibition grade and take my chance's. The same money to buy 6 exhibition grade, buys 15 regular grade with the same certification. The fact that this wood comes from Israel and the history behind it seems to be what everyone was asking about. No one mentioned that they had really cool grain, lol.
I love Barea too. I havnt ventured away from them since I started this whole turning thing back in Dec. I like that if I get an order for something that I dont have on hand, I can run up to the local Woodcraft and pick it up, allthough Woodcraft has a huge mark up on them, some kits such as the Elegant Sierra, nearly 100%. $11.00 ordered from Berea, $21.50 picked up at Woodcraft
