A local cabinet shop is going out of business and is selling every thing. They also tried at one point to retail lumber but the local market was not there.

So, today I picked up these lumber items:
Mahogany – 8/4×5 1/2” x 10’
Cherry – 4/4×11” x 9’
Lacewood – (3) 4/4×5”x 6’
Paduk – (2) 4/4×7” x 8’
Curly Maple – 4/4×5” x 8’
Makore – 6/4×14” x 8’
Walnut – 6/4×7” x 8’
Morado – 6/4×5” x 3’
Canarywood – 4/4×9” x 8’
Zebrawood – 4/4×8” x 6’

All of this for $116.00.

Also 1 fret saw, 2 coping saws, #3 Stanley, #4 Stanley, #6 Stanley, and 50” low profile edge guide all for $90.00. So for $206.00 I am now lumber and tool poor.

With that much wood those hand planes are going to give you a lot of exercise.

Sorry to hear about the cabinet shop not being able to make it.
But, their loss is your gain.
