Viking World Of Wood
Home Wood Fish Lures Wooden Urns Woodturningonline Wood Pro Boards Email
Most of the wood I use is reclaimed from storm or insect damaged trees found the DFW area and other places I travel. Sometimes I get cutoffs and leftovers from various commercial sources that were to be thrown away or traded by other wood workers around the USA and even overseas on special occasions. Never do I cut down trees for my own personal use. Many items are donated to charity or for special gift giving occasions to friends. Thank you for visiting and I hope to post more of my inventory in the days ahead.
