Rhododendron roots for woodworking

I have a large pile of rhododendron roots that need the right person's touch.

Here's the story behind the roots:
I worked building houses at the Greenbrier Hotel in the early 2000's. To make way for one of the houses there was an old gazebo on the property that needed to be demolished, which we did. I saved these rhododendron roots - they were used as decorative elements around the roof beams.
According to resources from hotel employees the gazebo was built by either German or Japanese war internees who were housed at the hotel during WWII.

I made several really nice art types of objects using this wood. Its grain is amazingly tight and iridescent. It is hard to work with; however the results are stunning.

As much as I would love to keep all this material and work with it over the years, we moved into another house with limited storage capacity.

Pls respond with a phone # so we can set up a time to meet - no phone # ='s no response from me.

Thank you
