PM, that was back in the '60s. I started out while in college with Dixie Plywood in Florida. We sold hardwood lumber rough random widths and lengths to the millwork and cabinet shop trades. Later in the '60s I was in Chattanooga at Georgia-Pacific. That's where we were selling to the foundry and pattern makers.

By the way, Honduras mahogany is probably my favorite wood. I love the deep rich color and fine grain. It is great furniture wood, and most of the furniture in my home is solid Honduras mahogany. It is getting a little rare, so cherry is taking over much of the furniture trade. Good, but not the best.

We can only get African mahogany these days and we keep plenty in stock . That's the reason the interior of William is all African . Here is a pic of a portion if our yard full of oak for flooring .we keep about 2 million ft on the yard .

PM, after graduating college I was promoted to sales manager for hardwood products for our parent company, Bradley Plywood Corp., Savannah GA. We were importers, veneer cutters, and manufacturers of fine architectural plywood and doors. That included hospitals, hotel and bank lobbies, and special cut and matched veneers. You name it. We could do it.

I loved to be in our plant watching the special cuts coming off the slicer. I really developed a love for fine hardwoods.

I made a pattern out of wood and had them cast in silicone bronze for $6/lb.
I have a local foundry that will cast anything in several metals at a per lb. price.

CONTACT INFO???
