35 and married with one son. Have been woodworking since I was about 5 years old. I went through all the proper stages of training helping my dad work on his love for hobby carpentry from being the holder/helper, then the sander, stainer and finally allowed to use the tools!! One day I hope to do this as a early retirement career.

I want to also thank everyone who has looked at my projects. I appreciate your interest and comments.

Hi guys, I am brand new to your site and in need of advice about building with Bubinga. I have purchased about 600BF of 4/4 Bubinga to build my kitchen out of. I have never used this wood before and have noticed that when I am ripping the boards they are curving like a banana. Is this normal for this wood? Any suggestions as to what a guy can do so I can cut and frame up my raised panel doors?

Thanks.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Glad to have you aboard. ☺

Sorry no info on bubinga lumber. Charles Neil who is a member of lumberjocks and has his own web site called antiquesbuiltdaily.com (I think) is in the process of building with some Bubinga. At least he had a pile of it when I was in his shop.

Ask him the question.
