    Curly birch

    I received a mial at my site last night that i thought might be of interest to us here. The link is www.masurbirch.com

    Please allow m to quote it

    We acknowledge with thanks the given opportunity to present our product to
    you. We are the company producing Masur birch sawn sizes (blocks).
    We are pleased to invite you to visit our web-site www.masurbirch.com
    Because of the beginning working season we would like to offer you masurbirch blocks sawn sizes.

    We have to plan the volume of our products to our potential
    market beforehand. The order have to be about cubic meter.
    Moreover we are glad to offer you blocks sawn
    sizes of the following species:bog oak, cherry, apple-tree, pear,plum.

    We hope that our offer will be of considerable interest for you.
    In case you need any further information or assistance,
    please do not hesitate to contact us.
    Looking forward to hear from you.

    They are asking 1.7 euro per block plus shipping for a block 1"x1.5"x 4.7" i am willing to mail them and ask for a price including shipping to a uk location if someone can organise postage onwards. i imagine that most of you are in the uk and it would undoubtable be better and cheaper for my stuff to be forwarded to me, instead of me forwarding to everyone else.

    i am reconing that if we can get a good enough order we can barter the price a bit more.

    i for one would happily take 40 blocks.

    Anyone else? anyone volenteer to receive and post onwards?

    Re: Curly birch

    I may be interested as well.
    But the company is in Belarus, no part of EU, so import taxes will apply.Unless orders are below about 25...
