Not onlyl is this my very first wood gloat it’s also my very first purchse useing cgraigslist…. i know, i know, i’m sure everyone is using it…. I saw an add with a pic for left over pieces of various hardwoods, all for 20.00. Figured what the heck i’ll go for it…... well to me…this was a jackpot…..

From first glance it alot of walnut, and cherry. There’s a few we don’t even know what they are. Also a few possible mahogony (they seem to red to be walnut as well). Time to start planning the projects….. :)

Always nice to have some extra lumber like that in the shop. I love CL – there’s always something on there to ponder getting :). Looking back through your blog, I really like the doors you built for your daughter’s school. Keep up the good work!
