We are excited to announce upcoming opportunities to purchase our rare wood!
Purchase online in April 2015.
First, Bone Mountain Bristlecone will be doing another online sale starting on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 10 a.m. MST (noon EST).
This small sale will feature a variety of turning blanks, some carving pieces, and a few exquisite root pieces that are suitable for display in their natural form. If our previous sale is any indication, the pieces will sell quickly, so mark your calendars! We will send reminders of the sale to all members of our mailing list. Sign up here if you are not on the list. (Hint: If you are getting this message via email, then you are on our mailing list.)
We will continue to offer free shipping within the continental USA on orders greater than $150.
Purchase at the AAW Symposium in Pittsburgh, PA in June 2015.
We are excited to announce that we will have a booth at the American Association of Woodworkers' Symposium in Pittsburgh this year (June 26-28, 2015). Here is a link to the website about the Symposium.
We are so excited to be bringing our rare wood to this event, and offering it for sale. We will be featuring larger pieces that are difficult (and expensive) to ship, as well as smaller pieces that are not economical to individually photograph. And more than that, this will be amazing opportunity for people to touch, hold, and smell the wood. You can count the growth rings (if you have time-- many of our pieces have about 100 years of growth rings in an inch of wood), you can feel the density, and get a sense of the breadth and variety of our pieces. I spend a lot of time with this wood, and I am constantly amazed by how unique and beautiful every single piece is. Just holding such beauty and history is a privilege that I am grateful for every single day. So I am excited to give a group of avid woodworkers the opportunity to just hold and appreciate the wood itself.
In addition, we are excited to have the opportunity to chat with all of you. We look forward to having the opportunity to talk with an amazing group of woodworkers about their needs, and to share more of our unique story. There will be two of us at the show: Myself (Laura Mezoff Christy), and my husband, Luke Christy. Luke is the son of Ruth Ann and Jim Christy, and in his past life, he harvested much of our Bristlecone himself.
So if you are going to attend the Symposium, be sure to stop by our booth and say hello! And send your friends. We look forward to bringing a slice of Bone Mountain to Pittsburgh in June!
