I wanted to post a quick entry praising one of our own LJs poroskywood for a lumber package that he put together for me this week. I contacted him a while back to inquire about ordering some curly maple from him and found him to be a really great guy to work with.
I opened the shipping boxes last night and heard the roar of tigers as the curly figuring of both cherry and maple jumped out at me. I was literally amazed. I don’t have any good lumber shops around me that balance both price and quality. I can now state with true conviction that he has a loyal customer for life. For those of you LJs like me who are searching for some alternatives to purchasing lumber online I recommend (at the very least) you check out some of poroskywood’s stock.
I am excited to get back into the shop to start playing around with some projects that bring the curly figure of these boards to life.
Beyond great ideas and fun concepts, I have found this site to be a really fascinating way to connect with like-minded wood workers across the globe in ways that were once impossible. What a great community.
As promised, here are some photos. Sorry, working in a dark garage and had to use my flash. As many of you know, photos just can’t do justice to an in-person look.
