Another nice one from Mr. John Cherry. Agave and balsa and who knows what else. Nice and light, this beauty is a rider!

Not sure if John Cherry has told you guys, but my dad owns Tropical Exotic Hardwoods over near the Palomar Airport Rd/El Camino Real Intersection. As of about a month ago, we have started to carry Balsa lumber. Over the years we have had numerous shapers inquire about it but have never attempted to stock it, so we are giving it a shot. John Cherry has been helping us getting the word out to everyone he thinks might be interested, but it’s really hard letting all the smaller backyard shapers and guys shaping their own boards know that we have some nice stock available from them. Most people think we only sell in bulk quantities, but our shop is open to anyone who is interested in wood. Our website is www.anexotichardwood.com and our phone number is 760-434-3030.
