Say I was an artist and I wanted to work with a particular type of wood or stone that comes from a region outside the USA, How would I go about finding what types of wood/stone comes from where, and then how could I buy it.
Is there a source of chunks of wood like teak that people use for interesting things, NOT typical lumber, but things like slabs of wood for a coffee table or bench, that is natural.
I have seen people make interesting things with blocks of stone from Indonesia that is really white, but I don't think that it is marble or granite, but I do not know what it is, and I would like to get my hands on some, even if its just a block of it, for an interesting desk paper weight or something.
