I need a small piece of that to use on a Scrabble board. What would it cost me?

I don’t need much, a scrabble board has 17 pink squares. When I make them up they will be 25 mm by 32 mm. 1 inch by 1 1/4 inch. When each is done it will only be 6mm (1/4 inch) thick.

Knives as in planer or as in pocket knives?

I make pocket Knives.. I think it will be best if I try and get some fresher bits of this wood. Most of it was rotten. My mother in law said I can chop the tree/shrub/bush and get some more. I will keep you updated.

That sounds like a plan. I should be able to find a good piece of black walnut or possibly some osage orange (which in our area is called “horse apple” and in other parts of the country bodart). Let me look around a bit and I will keep you posted. I have taken the liberty of adding you to my buddies list.

My wife is a language teacher and Scrabble is her favorite game. My plan is to make a board for her with one 1 1/4 inch squares. This will take a number of exotic woods including purple heart, cedar, and mahogany. If I do a good job on this she might let me win once in a while!
