I would NOT send any one money using Western union ,i assume you used the telephone wire method.
They can just collect the money and disappear ,no come backs and Western union admitt no responsibilty. I had a similar experience in the Ukraine which i`d like to forget.

With a tonewood dealer?
Could you elaborate if "yes", privately if that's more appropriate?

I ordered 2 times from him. The first shipment was first stuck at the Romanian post office because the package is too big. The supplier took the responsibility to ship them UPS to me, which is very nice of him. But the 2nd shipment, Romanian post said that it is already out of Romania. So they are still trying to find where the wood is.
The wood that I received from the first shipment was excellent. All of them were nice figured at a bargin price.
If there is a better solution to the logistic aspect of his offers, I think the Romanian could be a good source for wood.

I don't blame him when he promiss to send my order after a couple of days and it takes about 8 days !!Since things out of control there ,The delay was from the shipping company ,They came after 6 days, and the other suggested company DHL didn't come at all they are located 700km of his home !!
the only problem is the shipping ,I had to use courier to ensure I will recieve them ,Since the normal air mail has no tracking option and there will be a chance to loos them .
I have some pics. of my wood if interested to see them .
Good Luck .

I consider myself a seasoned buyer of tonewood. In addition to purchasing from established dealers such as Fuchs, Rivolta, Gleissner, and liuteria antica, I also bought wood fron fly-by-night suppliers and Gypsy. I used to attend summer schools in Trieste, a picturesque old Hapsburg seaport, and had been to severeal towns along the Adriatic coast before Yugo's break-up. My machinist came from Banja Luka, my wife's close friend married a fellow from that region. Through his connection, I bought one time 30 pieces of maple in that town but there was no way to ship them out during the height of NATO bombing in Kosovo. The wood were brought to Slovenia and sent by p. post. I paid a lot for shipping. D&D's wood came from Croat controlled area. The wood from Serb area were shipped to Zemun (a suburb of Belgrade) and distributed from there.

I talked to you briefly at the last VSA meeting (concerning your question to Curtin). I wish I had been able to spend more time talking to you.
What do you and others think of a group purchase of tonewoods in the form of a "Co-op". Distribution location and trust would be some issues.

I can't resist Of course, you probably don't buy unseasoned tonewood.
