Ha! I found this pic just today. As you guys know, I like to find the great deals on lumber, especially rippings, and shorts. I met a guy on ebay that sells his shorts of genuine mahogany. He owns a architectural millwork company, and he only deals in the mahogany. I bought several pieces, and after a while, I had enough for my Highboy. I labeled them all out with my New Yankee plan. Recognize any pieces? I only had to buy 2 boards at full retail, talk about “green”!!
This 2nd pic is my branding iron I mark all my pieces with. I got it at Rockler for a birthday gift from my mother, and sister.
