A question for you guys.
What are the most highly prized and hardest to get exotic woods?
My brother-in-law is visting from south America and come to find out he's in the lumber business down there and says he has access to whole Amazon region trees of some rare lumber(not region of trees but trees from that region)....he doesnt speak English so I didnt recognize any of the names of woods he gave me but he says hes gonna send me some wood samples when he gets back.
Here'a a curious fact...pine is rare down there
I told him to look into shipping and customs regulations too explore the possability of exporting in small quantities.
I want to get an idea of what south american lumber is popular but hard to get.
He's thinking full containers of lumber, I am thinking suite case size packages fedexed or UPS'd.
Provided the business angel is not a factor...any thoughts?
