I ran a wanted ad on Craigslist asking for scrap hardwoods for tooling and this is one of the people who replied and gave me a bunch today; white oak, red oak, apple, birds eye, cherry, jungle exotics, veneer, MDF, cabinet quality plywood scraps. He builds beautiful works of art in his shop/business and I recommend you all go and take a look.

he’s reducing the size of his shop because his landlord is charging him too much for rent so he said he will have a bunch more for me soon when he reduces his materials inventory.
He built one of those Biesmeyer clones that we see on the internet and it came out fine. His name is Hans Donker so that pretty much explains it. He’s German and is really a gentleman.

Generous guy !
The ‘about Hans’ section is a great read. What a life he’s had.
He’s Dutch not German though.

Thank you for taking the time and initiative to visit his site and you are absolutely correct; Dutch not German.
