    My favorite seller of wild wood it s "godoudscent" in Instagram from Singapore. Only whole piece, you choice the photo and you receive the same.
    Many soil specimen and old stock. He learns me very good, use microspcope to see the resin, very interesting. He has an incredible book with many description of different kind of agar wood.
    Now my collection is incredible, I am very happy. I advice to see his Instagram. ;)

    I personally find him quite fishy since he blocked me at Instagram immediately after I contacted him to ask for his phone number since we're both in Singapore :Cautious:

    Hi guys, Thought I would update as to what is happening with this.

    I got a reply to my email about the sinking wood.
    The guy said he is sorry but cannot understand why I was not happy with the wood as it was good and could I send him some photos of other wood pieces that I would consider to be sinking.
    He also said he would send me some different wood that is better as an apology.

    He said that he does have the higher grade wood and from what he said it sounded as though there was a mistake.
    I tested this and ordered some more to see if he is truthful.

    What I got sent this time was of an even lower grade than last time.....A-AA grade not sinking.
    I messaged him to tell him that is way out of order and this time it was even lower so wth is he playing at. I offered to send him pictures of the pieces floating so how could he possibly call it sinking as I could tell the instant I saw them how low a grade it is.
    (the pieces had the density of snapping a stale quaver crisp).

    His reply to this was short and sweet......."I think you should just send it back".......Oh and he never sent the apology wood, though I honestly didn't think he would anyway.

    Bit of a ramble (I am very tired) but after testing this guys integrity, he has failed 100%. Do not show this guy support as he is dishonest.
    I would never intentionally harm someones reputation and that is why I tested him and bought again to make sure if it was a mistake before updating this.

    I will be sending the stuff back so it is only post fees I have lost, but at least it is clear not to trust this vendor.


    If you guys want pictures of what I got sent as sinking before I send it back just let me know and I will take some.
    Hope this is ok, I am very tired and I hope this does not come off sounding agressive.......people say my grammar is angry, it is not meant to, my grammar is really just awful and gets worse the more tired I am.

    Hi Lupin. Could you mention the vendor details so we can be careful? Also send some pics when possible.

    Hey guys, These are the images I said I would post.
    Sorry if the pictures are bad I had to take them on my phone and it can be a bit iffy.

    In order these pieces are Srilankan, Laos and Borneo. They all used to be in one piece but were so soft and brittle due to lack of resin that they broke up just picking them up out the baggies. They look a lot darker in the photos than they do in real life.
    They are a lot lighter in real life.

    Hi Lupin,

    I've got some vietnam wood that is quite pale and light but it gives off a great scent and bubbles with oil on the subitism. What voltage are you taking the wood up to out of interest ?
