drift wood

When I am out in the field or on the streams / rivers. I often find drift wood or unique weathered wood. Many times I gather this wood thinking I may get something mounted by a taxidermist and use this for a base. It is starting to pile up. I also thought of asking my taxidermist if he would want to purchase any of it from me. Was wondering if others do this and if I could find a market for it.

Re: drift wood

Yes. There is a market for it. At the taxidermy shows they generally have at least one person selling wood and usually sells a truck bed full in a day or two.
Wood sells for $5 - $25 a piece on average.

Re: drift wood

Depends how dense the wood is too, cedar and Cyprus typically are the best wood for taxidermist to use! The western cedar is the most popular
