Thanks LesPlenty, I agree. Hey people name your number.
@LesPlenty Thanks. I purchased paint brushes a while back, but these actually look much better.
S&B say the brushes are heat resistant, I have been using mine for about a year and it is still going strong and I always brush out vapes straight after using. (I use it on all my vapes and grinders)
For any of you log vape lovers who would like to help out a log vape mfr. & get an opportunity to partake in a fabulous raffle:
12.5 is my favorite. Smoker buddies seem to like it there too. Here's a good milk: https://v.redd.it/j8o4uvzzux021
I got a package from Mississippi the other day; I’m amazed that Ed can fit so much into one tube! I read the list of included accessories more than once but when you see it all spread out, it’s a lot stuff he throws in the package price. It’s pretty psychedelic, I will get some pictures of it up soon though they probably won’t do it justice. I’m just over the moon with it, it’s really all I asked for and then some!
Hey hey, wow everyone so its been a little bit since I was able to stop for time enough to post. Getting ready for the BF sale was intense. I spent a month working my butt off getting as many WS species back in stock and adding a couple newer ones as well. Had a couple inquires for what I may have and how many. I think I had 15 species in stock at the start of the sale and had maybe 2-4 of each. When you have that many species its tough to have a bunch of each and every one. During all the BF work I had a couple dealer orders to make happen and one was rather large of 200+ stems and accessories of 6 or more types. Remember this is all hand turned, no machines and no help, an army of one giving it hell and all I got!
BIG BIG WOW from the BF sale, never ever since the biz started almost 12 years ago have, I done as well in that short a time in retail sales, it was phenomenal and can’t believe how many WS were purchased. Gotta give a BIG BIG THANKS to all for making it the most successful sale I have had. I have been working to get them all out this week but have been behind in this and will have the remaining orders out next week.
I have also gotten a new wood dealer and oh my gosh what freaking outstanding top shelf species I have been able to see and get. I have gotten my hands on some of the most beautiful Amboyna Burl museum grade chunks that will truly make some of the most amazing WoodScents ever seen.
Jeez I am sure he knows it, this stuff is my kinda crack, I can’t help myself. He tells me he’s got this and shows me that and feel my arms curl up behind my back and know that I gotta have em. The above piece is just one of them I have gotten. Below is what I chopped up, the left top and bottom are already gone. The other 6 are still available if you are interested get at me quick. I have only done about 4-6 of these in the past, once I turned a few showed pics here and there that was it they were gone and never got to list them at the site.
Get this last night I connected with another new dealer and jeez almighty, I felt the arms curl up behind me again, will have sure enough stunner Walnut in curl and burl that will turn heads. He is getting back at me today and can feel my bank account taking a heavy hit.
Ohhhh wow, haven’t had time for much else but next week its on, got 3 days back to back duck hunts planned and am super excited and just can’t stinking wait WOOT WOOT its going to be on yall!!!!
Once again everyone, thank you for the orders, the support and encouragement. I can’t tell you how blessed I am to do what I love and have others love what I do, just don’t get any better than that.
@Whissmu Thank you
@pxl_jockey My man, as I said I havent had a whole lot of time to do much but make magic in the shop, lol probably looks like magic to some and yeah alot of times it is but most of the time its work and a whole lot of it. I would see that you had posted here and I would drop by to see your excitement and joy of know your unit was on its way and it had arrived and really made my days, thank you. Your piece was especially fun cause you described what you were looking for and I told ya I thought I had just that piece but wasnt sure it would turn out. Thought it may turn but wasnt sure if it would even work as the void is quite large from bottom to top. I got right to it the next day as it was a challenge and I love those kind of jobs. I got excited and hope it was what you were looking for and quickly sent you out a pic hoping it was what you were looking for, you said alot of kind words then and I felt your excitement then and we both knew that it still might not work out but after all said and done it did and what a beautiful truly one of kind piece it is. Speaking of pics, lets see some more of that raw lively side pls sir.
@sixstringsmash Hahaha, you said it well bro!
@Whisper GHosh you think VAS is tough, hello I am Ed, I am a wood hoarder. Bro my addiction is severe and rooted deep within me. My wood dealers are killing me! Jeez if only we had unlimited funds, do you think it would be that much fun then. I am surprise and hint kinda guy and love the wonder of guessing right up until the moment ya know.
@KidFated. Thanks brother.
@Soda Jeez bro I had forgotten how beautiful that Afzelia I did for ya was, you really have a dynamite duo and neat to see how you have them in the pelican case safe and secure. I enjoyed your pics so much that I screenshot em and posted at IG, had to show you off lol. Really hoping you are enjoying the new glass tip stem and look to hear how you are, pls let us know. Hate it was all beat up but glad it arrived.
@Whisper Glad to hear you grabbed one and if I didnt get you out already I will next week, pls hang in there with me.
@StoneMan Thank you sir, those Katalox pieces are sweet. Same to you bro if I havent gotten you out already I will be in touch next week. Been digging out and am almost there.
@LesPlenty Bro you are right I did send a stir and brush tool in the package at first but lost my connection for them and havent been able to find anything similar since. I have had a couple peeps in china look for something like em but have had no luck. I would like to add them again, if ya know of anything besides the $15 pls let me know.
@Modicum I have been reading folks using it at 10.5 and 10.7 enjoying the heck out of it there.
Its been a while and forgive me for the time and I hope I have covered it all and wish you all a great rest of your weekend.
As I said if I havent gotten your order out and wanna get an update get at me, I am working my butt off to get em all out and will do so next week.
You can get the S&B ones for $2.90 for a three pack direct on their site. I'm sure PIU will match that price.
Edit* Free shipping at $50.
@ $2.90 for a 3 pk? Now it makes sense, Ebay keeps hawking them for 3 for $15.
Phew! Missed that bullet.
Yeah! I'm thinking It'll be here in time for Christmas!! I prepared myself for a long wait because I saw that you sold out of a bunch day one of the sale(Thats awesome!). I dont mind the wait though, you know what they say, good things take time and I'm thinking I'm going to get something really good!
And to you guys that already have one, is there anything I should know going in? Quirks? Preferences? Addons? Fun anecdotes? Ive read through most of this thread so I know the basics.
I picked up an extra glass WPA and conical screens because I imagined the WS being like a little EVO. Am I right in thinking that? Little EVO?
Honestly, I prefer the short wood adapter with glass because I can still use the dynavap tip. I prefer the dynavap tips to anything I have to stick a slidey screen in.
That seems to be the general consensus, from what I've read. Thanks!
How's the airflow on the Dynavap tip compared to the glass? Is the unit itself pretty free flowing? Can I leave the glass WPA on the unit with herb in it?
So many questions!!
To me it's less "finicky" and more even.
I use the long wood stem when I use it dry, which is like 65% of the time. I don't have Ed's new glass stem that fits the dynavap tip yet, but I've been meaning to order one. Ed has also said that a shorter glass waterpipe adapter that fits the dynavap tip snugly is in the works. I may find myself using the glass stems more once I have those.
Airflow is fine. There is probably slight restriction over the glass screen, because of the slightly narrower neck, but not enough to matter to me. Not even sure if it's enough to notice. At the speeds we draw, it depends more on how tight you pack it.
Any idea when new VVPS for the Woodscents will be up for sale? Been waiting for one!
They’re up on the site, have been for a while now. Under accessories > here.
Says they're out of stock. That's not to say you can't find any old VVPS that won't work. I use the same old one that I used to use with my underdog for years and it still works like a charm.
Edd, my man! I think there was a little mix up, I just asked you for a vaporizer but instead you sent me this FINE ART! What gives!?
Look at that!!! That's a thing of beauty! I really couldn't be happier with how it came out. You do excellent work, I appreciate it.
That's it for now, new toys to play with and all! I'll be back with my thoughts on the functionality after I put it through its paces!
Thanks @sixstringsmash for pointing out they’re out of stock at the moment, didn’t look that close tbh! And excellent point about so many VVPS out there being up to the task. I was lucky enough to pull one out of one of my boxes of valuable junk and confirmed here with members that it was fit for purpose.
Nice @StoneMan that’s just beautiful! Y’all are going to have fun getting to know each other. Ed gives you so many ways to use it, it takes some real time and serious dedication to experiment with them all. I know just what you mean too, and agree; Ed’s WoodScents really are Fine Art. Art that’s so Fine, it’ll smack you upside your head and leave ya smiling like this:
The best after a few loads is discovering I’ve quit vaping and I’m simply admiring the work & the wood.
I can only hope mine is 1/2 the beauty of your WoodScents. I was checking my shipping, it says USPS has my shipping label created, but, it's waiting for item. IDK
Maybe mine ( WS ), will be here next week, hoping so.
Yours is really beautiful.
@Whisper IIRC, Ed sends out the previous week’s orders on a Monday & Tuesday? As it’s a one-man show, Ed has to do it all plus the singing and dancing. He’d need some full work days and don’t forget about his social media empire! If anyone knows differently, please pipe up and correct me.
But if I’m right (BIG if) the labels been created and your WS is nestled in a tube & anxiously waiting to set off for its new home! It’s funny but now I get kinda excited for the person every time someone is getting a new WS. Such a wonderful experience shopping with Ed, including the anticipation I think!
I am just popping in for a quick post, the last of the BF sale orders went out early Tuesday morning 12/4/2018. I found out later that day that the USPS was taking the next day off for Bush 41, thats totally cool and I feel that was right but gosh what a not cool time to take one off. I am still showing some labels in the printed status, I hate USPS for that. Usually that are spot on but their tracking kinda stinks more times than not. Everyone should be getting their orders soon and hope those that havent yet maybe do so today as the USPS does deliver on saturday. Keep in mind that each and every WS order went out priority 2 day and was insured.
I get it and understand, my post probably doesnt make ya feel any better but is where I am at and am keeping an eye on all that is going on. Pls pls hang in there with you all and I am always here for you however I can be.
I figured it was some snafu, last time we were waiting on
USPS, was when that nut was sending bombs across the country.
Everything came to a halt in Opa Locka, where the mail center is.
I've looked forward to owning my very own WS- so, I am dyin' here!
Kidding aside, @pxl_jockey, you know the wait.
Hello everyone, wow its been a really busy week as always but that is good. I have been checking my Stamps.com history daily and see some have been delivered and see some show just simply printed. As I said USPS is usually great for shipping, every once in a while they do screw up and I as I always have work with each and every customer no matter what to make it right with them and in the end everyone is happy. I will say that the USPS tracking service stinks and being this time of year it stinks a whole lot. Also each and every WS shipped is priority 2 day insured as well. Domestic is $7.50 and International is $15, I gotta believe that is a pretty good deal for anyone and considering I still pay on top of that to keep these rates solid. I know its gotta be frustrating that I had a delay in getting em out initially then there is a delay from the USPS and some may still not have it in hand yet having ordered from 11/22 but believe me I am here for you and will be way after the sale.
OK I learned something yesterday. When tracking says printed and thats it, its not that it wasn’t accepted cause it was it just wasn’t checked in. I spoke with the post master and then had a sandwich with him a couple stores down at the subway. It was crazy there today, when I was in line dropping off other orders I so the pile grow from the floor to over the top of the counter in just a few minutes of people dropping off stuff, jeez there is a lot of packages moving through there. So the PM explained it to me like this, being as how much comes into the post office his people can only do so much, when the pick up truck gets there whatever is labeled and ready to go goes no matter if its been checked in or not its gone so its on the move and hopefully it will show up at your door or they will scan it somewhere along the way to give us an idea. Said that its that time of year and its crazy for him and everyone there. I said yes I can imagine and understand, still wish I could give my customers tracking info and a better answer but this is what the man said to me and is what it is. Not sure what else can be done.
I have been turning the Amboyna and have said it before if youre not at IG and not seeing what I am doing daily then you are missing out. Holy freaking cow, I will show you this and assure you that you aint seen nothing yet.
Can you believe this is the same piece??? The burl in this piece is outa sight and the tones are so vibrant and rich with that tad of live edge at the top rim, you get it all in this WoodScents and then some. It is gone though and a couple more like it. Will say I have about 4-5 more blocks that are going to make stunners, if you wanna grab one I suggest you get at me soon as I dont feel they will last long. This one sold a few minutes after I posted it at IG.
Also got a load of one of a kind Stem/Accessory stands from a great friend down under all hand made with love and sent off to their new homes this morning for all to enjoy. Get a look at whats on the sides and back oh yeah all Aussie and Taz wood species. The back blanks are large enough for WS and are 1,000's years old Huon Pine, what a pleasure it has been ripping square in the shop. These have subtle figure and gotta love the golden honey tones. Side species are not quite large enough for WS but will make great stems or whatnots be it wanted.
I have been scoring wood last day or two I had not ever heard of, karelian birch burl, say what yeah I know but believe me what I have coming is out of this world. Almost looks like it will have platinum/gold/silver and even rich bloody red omgosh its insane!! Also got a small load of English Walnut in from my man @phattpiggie Jeez who else you know doing it like this?
Had to do a custom job for a good guy
My first production Duck call, Cocobolo top and bottom. Really like the sound this all wood piece has. Was fun doing something different and feel it turned out well. I hope the guy who gets it really enjoys it.
Have added these to the site, wow they really are a fun accessory to have with WS
These are all made to spec for the WS Ti tip, each and every piece are fitted and guaranteed for the Ti Tip. I am not certain if they will work with others. I have the SS and M tips coming to compare so cant say if they are compatible or not.
@Magic9 Thanks, I will look into this more, I appreciate you posting up.
@Whisper 3 for $15 not cool. I am so hoping you have just been so busy getting to know your WS that you havent had time to let us know? Pls keep us updated.
@StoneMan So glad it made it and thank you initially for the wait you anticipated. I really like that piece you got, has some curling going on to give it that added flare. Its a beautiful piece for sure and hope you are enjoying. Will look to see more posts from you in the future.
@Ramahs Thanks for posting up advise always, you are the man.
@dankyanddoodle Hello and welcome to the forum, VVPS may be here end of the week probably be next week. Should have plenty so keep an eye out and get back at me.
@pxl_jockey & @sixstringsmash thanks guys for helping out with the vvps, you guys are right about them, any will work really as long as you have the right cables. I remember when they first starting coming into play and got this tattoo power supply that you had to take one of the cable and solder on a 1/4" male audio jack, wow thought I was hot stuff hahaha, the dang thing got awful hot but wow I was able to control the voltage jeez how neat I that was back then. Before that we got a 13.5V DC power supply for our Zaps lol.
@pxl_jockey Thanks again for helping out, yes sir you are correct on the days I ship, and that I do it all from web to wood, mrs ed helps out alot when needed. I hope the above explains the shipping issues weve been experiencing. I appreciate you spreading the word and the love for what I do and love to do.
Thats it for me yall, I have had the heater on in the shop for a couple hours now and there are alot of treasures in there that need working. Take care everyone and holla anytime!
Yes, Ed! I received my WS yesterday! It arrived around 3 p.m. at the house, and,
it was my very first sight of a log. What a petite little lady, she is. I assumed the size
was a little larger ( photos ). It will take me a little longer, on the learning curve.
I'd take a picture, but, don't really know how to get my phone to cooperate, trust me,
she's a beauty. Thank you, Ed
