OK Guys-
After looking at as many possibilities as possible I've decided on
either the Dymondwood or Juarawood. Problem is, I haven't been able to
find it in 4" sq. stock. If anyone has gotten pieces this large, I'd
like to know where.
TIA,

If you can find Diamondwood that size, please let me know. Jarrah is
available from Tropical *** Hardwoods, but I don't know if it is the
same as what you are talking about (Juarawood) I do know that Jarawood is
Australian Eucalyptus (sic?)

Dymondwood - you say you need 4: sq stock.  Does this mean a 4" cube, or
4" x 4" x ?   A friend who turns a LOT of dymondwood says he calls Tom
Hutchinson at HUT for large pieces.  They cut pen blanks from large
sheets.  If he needs a thick piece, he stack laminates with super glue.  I
have seen stuff he has turned this way.  The joins are absolutely
invisible.7

Contact Craft Supplies in Utah. They have a large selection of Dymond
wood.

Thanks Mike-
After talking to the folks at Craft Supplies I had decided to do the
same, only I'm going to use a slow cure epoxy since super glue isn't
waterproof.
Thanks Again,
