I was out this weekend at a friend’s place where some logging is being done (I’ll be posting about that in the near future).
I started to think about the process of gathering lumber for use in the design and building of furniture projects. The work being done at my friends was very small scale when compared to any kind of a commercial operation however, it made me think about the benefits that small operations like this offer to the average woodworker.
I buy rough lumber from small local sawmills for use in virtually all of my woodworking projects. I think that there are a lot of benefits to doing this. I examine some of my rationale for doing so in a new post in my blog. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
