I tried to make a deal with Smokey Mountain Woodcarver Supply Near
Pigeon Forge, TN where I would swap cottonwood bark for credit for
carving tools. I actually sent Mac some bark but it wasn't thick
enough for carving. He needs bark that is at least 3" thick and it
sells for about $8.50 a pound. I have never seen any that was that
thick around here. Anyone got some thick cottonwood bark might be
able to work a deal with these guys.

Has nice grain and a deep color.Finishes nicely with Deft Satin
Usually bark from the colder climates (western states and provinces)
is really thick (5 "), so i'm told. Stuff i've worked with came from
Don't have much suitable in Ontario , anyone west of here that has
any info on the 5 W's of bark , feel free to email me. Haven't had a
lot of luck Googling bark collection
I presume that there might be some kind of agriculture ban bringing
it in from the states. Planning a bark collecting expediton this
summer , to keep me busy this winter.
