I responded to an ad on Craigslist this weekend for ‘Oak Board Shorts’. Sure enough, it turned out to be from a guy named Siggy, from whom I had purchased wood from twice before in the past. He was selling 81 boards of Oak, 22” in length, 4” wide, and 9/16” thick, all planed and ready for projects.. perfect width and thickness for more jewellery and keepsake boxes. I got the lot for $35 (approx. 25 board feet). The boards are all totally clear, no knots or defects anywhere. I feel that I got myself a good deal. I just gotta make room for the stash on my lumber rack now, which is pretty darn full as it is, but I assure you that I can find room for it.
