My personal phone:
I use UPS Ground Shipping for packages and UPS, Old Dominion, or Southeastern Freight Lines for large orders and full drums. Tracking links are sent automatically to your email address, which I also use for communicating to you and sending invoices and receipts. I do not publish, use, sell, or in any way make available your email, banking information, address, or name. My website is under https protocol, using industry-standard SSL 256-bit encription.
*****ONLINE PAYMENT GATEWAY IS CLOSED. PayPal and merchant service providers (cc's) are even more unethical than our banking system, if that is possible. *****
I HAVE BEEN MAKING LAND ARK FOR AMOST TWENTY YEARS. THE COST OF MATERIALS ALONE TO MAKE A GALLON IS FOUR TIMES GREATER THAN WHEN I BEGAN; AND COULD SELL FINISH FOR $25 AND $35 PER GALLON.
1- 4g partial drum......$70/g
The dyes and pigments I use are the best out there, but are insanely expensive; but used as a stain should be and then top coated, I have gotten 1200 sq. ft. per gallon on mahagany doors that were sanded to 220 grit.

PLEASE SPECIFY THE TYPE OF FINISH THAT YOU WANT.
FULL PAYMENT IS DUE BEFORE SHIPPING - I WILL NOT MAKE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS. WHEN I HAVE ORDERS TOTALING 300 TO 1,000 GALLONS OF FINISH, I CANNOT KEEP IN STOCK THE AMOUNT OF MATERIALS NEEDED TO FILL THESE LARGE ORDERS. FOR FIFTEEN YEARS, I HAVE HAD MORE ORDERS THAN I CAN FILL AT ANY ONE TIME. YOUR CHECK WILL GO INTO AN ESCROW ACCOUNT UNTIL TIME TO ORDER MATERIALS. I WILL REPORT PROGRESS AND NOTIFY YOU BEFORE I ORDER MY RAW MATERIALS, IN CASE YOU WANT TO CANCEL. LEAD TIME WILL BE ABOUT A MONTH FROM THE TIME MATERIALS ARE ORDERED.
I DON'T KNOW OF ANY TIMBER FRAME COMPANY THAT CAN KEEP AN INVENTORY OF TIMBERS, NOR ORDERS THE TALLY OR CUT LIST WITHOUT PREPAYMENT. I MAY BE IN A SMALLER ONE, BUT THE BOAT IS STILL THE SAME.
I HAVE TO PROCESS YOUR PAYMENT TO BUY SUPPLIES; I WILL TELL YOU TO GET YOUR PERMISSION TO PURCHASE MATERIALS, IN CASE YOU WANT TO ORDER LATER. IT CAN TAKE AS LONG AS A MONTH TO PURCHASE MATERIALS, MAKE FINISH, AND SHIP YOUR ORDER. IF YOU DECIDE TO CANCEL DUE TO DELAYED SHIPPING, YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL. BUT REGARDLESS, FULL PAYMENT IS DUE BEFORE SHIPPING.
