Spliiting Wood - 11 replies
As most of you know, the better wood comes in 1 inch or larger thicknesses. I do not have a band saw to split the wood into thinner pieces. I can cut a maximum width of 6.25 inches on my table saw if I cut one side and flip it tail over nose and cut it again. I hate WASTING wood by turning it into sawdust in the planer! Is there ANY WAY to cu...

I have had it for less than a ...

Birdseye Maple - 13 replies
Is it just here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, or is birdseye maple REALLY expensive? As many others on LJ, I do what I love as a hobby. I am a working stiff and can’t afford to spend a bunch of money on “good wood”. I have always loved they way birdseye maple looked (even before it is made into anything). I recently went to the...
