I used to get some good quality European Boxwood from Workshopheaven, an English supplier. Now they stopped selling it because of a serious infection in the growing area (some even say that EB is finished). I am after some reliable supplier of this beautiful material. Any ideas?

Yes, this is the Turkish variety. I bought some pieces earlier. Close in quality to the European one, but not as consistent in hardness and colour. There are some brown stripes in it (warmer years) which are also softer. It can be bought directly from Octopus (Turkey). They are selling it for musical instruments on the first place but there is also a 'model ship' section on their site. And they sell also other exotic types of wood.
My problem have ben solved due to the generosity of Karl (Jeronimo) - thanks for it this way too - so I am not searching for Boxwood any more.
