Eric Meier (IWCS #9701)

Are you interested in getting or using new and unusual wood species? Are you a wood collector? If so, maybe we can trade. If you are a member of the International Wood Collectors Society (IWCS), then you probably already know that the standard size for wood samples is 6″ (long) x 3″ (wide) x 1/2″ (thick). sample-size

What I’ve got for trade

Please note that this is not a for-sale list—I’m only looking to extend my diversity of wood species and therefore multiply the reach of the site. For purchasing wood samples, I’d direct you to other sources such as Gary Green, Carlton McLendon Inc, or the man who quite literally wrote the book on wood collecting, Alan Curtis.

A few brief notes about the sample list above.

  • Unless otherwise noted in the “Notes” column, all samples should be very close to 6″ x 3″ x 1/2″ and in reasonably good condition, as well as fully air-dried to at least 12% moisture content.
  • Wood species identification is carefully checked, but not absolutely guaranteed. I try to deal with only reputable wood retailers and collectors. However, with that being said, I have received a number of misidentified woods (thankfully a very small percentage) over the years—sometimes from even the best of sources. I’ve made every effort to screen out what I believe are misidentified or questionable wood samples, but be aware that mistakes do happen.
