It is with great trepidation that I post this, but I really like these
There's a company near downtown St. Louis called Hibdon Hardwood and it is
a paradise of exotic lumber. After years of wholesaling exotics, primarily
to instrument makers, they've opened a retail storefront. Hidden inside
the unassuming shop, there's just stacks of beautiful wood. Sure, they
have your curly maple, mahogany, purpleheart and so forth. But they have
some spiffy stuff like macassar ebony, primavera, zebrawood, and figured
I asked today how the retail side was going. "It's there" was the reply.
Seems that things have been slow through out the summer. I'm only posting

So if you're loitering around St. Louis, check 'em out. You can look up
their info easily enough. In fact, I'm pretty sure that you can Feel Lucky
when Googling their name.
Standard disclaimers apply. I'm not affiliated with them in any way,
except as a mildly concerned customer.
