Well, I picked up a 5×5 sheet of 1/2” Baltic birch plywood yesterday for the substrates and to build a table saw cross cut sled, which I’ll need to complete the build. Also picked up a 12×72 inch sheet of maple veneer. There goes $75 of my budget, although about $25 of that will be charged to the sled project, so net is about $50 so far. Another $5 or so will end up in my veneer collection as I won’t need more than half of the sheet, even with using some to experiment with dye techniques.
Off to make some sawdust!
Wish me luck.
