Question: Do you take orders over the phone? Answer: Not at this time. Selling this wood is a side project for me in addition to the other wood working projects I do as a living. I have a significant quantity of laminates on hand and thought I would offer it to the wood working community. However answering phones all day to take small orders is not really an option for me time wise right now. I realize that a few orders will be lost because of this but it is a necessity. You can get a hold of me at email@example.com but please don't submit a question that is answered here in the FAQ. Thanks!
