Dear Mardena,
Wood is a major component in my life, especially the burl I get from you. I don't think most people could phantom the amount of time and effort you put forth to make your services available. I do consider it an honor and privilege to be associated with you ... A woman of integrity and unequaled love of wood and it's beauty. You are a true connoisseur of wood art, and I wish you unlimited success in you future business endeavors. This being said, I would like to present to you my 75th hourglass as a token of our friendship and mutal love of burl.

With loving respect and admiration,

I have been dealing with Exotic Burl for some years now and find them to be one of the best kept secrets in the woodturning world. I have never been dissatisfied with 1 piece of burl that I have received from Mardena, and in fact, I have received some of the most beautiful maple burl I have ever seen. Prices have been about the best I have ever found for burl wood.
Most importantly, I have faith and confidence in the people I am dealing with. I highly recommend them as a source for wood and burl.

My faith in the www has proven to be well founded. Good wood has found it's way to woodworkers.

I cannot thank you enough for having me on your site as one of the featured artists. So many people have contacted me because of your site, and have even had comments about my work from as far away as Thor, Norway.
Your wood is the best that can be found, however it is dealing with you that makes it a great value.
Thanks for all your help.
