I had a day off and decided to head up to Toledo to get some red oak at KenCraft Company (www.kencraftcompany.com). I had asked about shipping it to me south of Dayton and shipping would be about $80. So, I decided to just make the trip and see what they had. An excellent selection and very good prices. I picked-up 50BF or Red Oak, a couple nice pieces of Sapele for a full-length mirror for the inlaws, and a $5 box of random scraps that are great for small projects. Worth the trip and I’ve already gotten the Sapele cut and shaped for the mirror. No plans for the oak yet, but it’s S3S unlike the rough Sapele so it will be much easier to work with. $200 later and I’m stocked for some time to come.

Nice haul! Looks like a pretty good $5 deal.

I’ve dealt recently with Ken and Tonya of Ken Craft Company for dust collection fittings and want to let everyone know Ken Craft has done an excellent job for me. The reducing saddles are excellent for tapping into an existing header. They are making me a special order reducer to fit the Grizzly 5 1/4 inch dust outlet of the 20 inch planer to my 4 inch collection system. Very nice people to deal with.
