OUR FIRST SHOW *PIC*

Jim King
>We just participated in our first wood show here in the Amazon. It was striking that even the lumbermen were taken back by our woods. A classic case of can´t see the forest for the trees. We displayed 24 unknown species in lumber and turning blanks plus turnings. One of the most unusual comments was “what country did our wood come from”. Everyone here works in half a dozen simple species like Mahogany and pay no attention to the nice woods. We had a good time and could have sold a lot but everything is already destined for the States.
