Arp wood products started in my back yard cutting duck call blanks and pen blanks to sell on eBay and other sites. One of my customers told me when his duck call blanks break on the lathe he uses them to smoke meat in his smoker. He remarked that my wood was top quality smoker wood. After some research I decided to try his theory. My first product was white oak micro chip. I put 10 bags on eBay and they sold out almost immediately and the rest is history. To date I have sold over 4000 bags of micro chip or as I call it " shaved hardwood".
