On my last trip to the wood store (as my granddaughters call it), I was about to walk out with a future desk when the ceiling and clouds rolled back, a stream of light broke through and there it was… the golden pallet. +- 500 BF of hardwood cutoffs for…..$95. Could this be? I checked with the owner, confirmed the price and went $95 over my budget. If it is an America hardwood, I got it. Immediately, my mind went into hyper-drive

....and they lived happily ever after.

THE END

sounds like a match made in a lumberyard.

Happy making!

Here is the wood and a couple projects I am working on with some the pieces. One will be knife block/caddy and the other a box with rounded top and sides

Well, looks like my magic wood pile did not show up here. I’ll try again
