Robert, you know, (most) folks won't mind if you simply would say
" I work for <insert name of company here> and thought the link to our

Come in here like you just discovered this site, or like you have no
association with it, and you are going to get your butt flamed and
nobody will do business with it anyway.
A discovery is made.
I just bought some stuff from these guys back the last week of
December. Then, they'd never heard of usenet when I replied to their
query of where I found out about them.
Yes, they got a lot of wood, some really cool. Kinda pricy, though
that's a curse of the area in which they reside perhaps. And, not as
bad as some of the other places around here. You can traipse around
the joint and pick out whatever your heart's desire (as long as it's
pining for wood). They even had some koa.
I have to say, I didn't plan ahead (left my brain in bed or sumptin')
and did make arrangements to have my lumber milled before I actually
drove to the place. But, the guy there did manage to get it done in a
reasonable amount of time (a grand total of 5 - 7' boards) while I
waited (once I told him I was waiting). BTW, those 5 boards were near
$300. Oh wait, 6 boards - 1 was a 4' x ~6" x 3/4 chunk of pink ivory
(really nice looking), which contributed $88 to the total. If you
recall my travails and tribulations with Advantage Lumber, seems like
I wasn't that far off their $500 magical minumum. Could easily've
added a few boards, and met it. (though I was sorta tryin' to watch
every dime as employment was tenuous).
On the negative side, Annapolis branch was closed day after Christmas,
day before Christmas (& Christmas, of course) and left a sign on their
door. Couldn't be bothered to change their answering machine message,
or let the other branch know about these plans. Means I'd a driven 22
miles, each way - to find the sign on the door.
Anyhoo, overall, a generally positive impression.
