I am always on the search for new woods for making tampers.  One of the results of this homeroast is that I am in the tamper business.  I make all wood tampers.   Now that Tom carries tampers, I don't post my website.  I began emailing a woodturner in New Zealand, and he got me in touch with a wood supplier.  I understand that there is less than a ten year supply left.
