Hey Christian

I'm looking at making a few Alaia's, what price for a 8' x say 20" plank?
Bear with me, I don't buy wood often ;0)

Hi I am interested in this wood to create a lightweight but strong yoga product, finished cut dimension will be 220x115x75mm
can we buy planks to have cut to this finished size, what are your minimums, the cost per cubic metre and carriage costs
or could you cut to this dimension?

Kind regards

Bernadette

Welcome to the forum Bernadette. I suggest that you contact Christian direct as he isn't a regular contributor here. If you need any further help producing the product you require then I'm sure that others here may well be able to help.

Best wishes,

Welcome to the forum Joe. Must admit I had to google Alaia's and Paipo's as your facebook link doesn't work, although that may be because I don't use FB. Perhaps you can share some photos of boards that you've made.

Cheers,

Hello all,
Do you think this type of wood would be suitable for indoor plantation shutters, with it being strong and light? Or would I be best to stick to the recommended basswood/lime (if I can find an affordable supplier in the UK)
Thanks
