I go to the “dump” where the tree guys haul their felled trees. Look for some nice, fresh stuff (mostly maple or sycamore in this area). Bring it home and cut it into blanks. Rough turn the blanks while they are wet/green. Pack them in the shavings from the turning process, wrap them in newspaper and store them in a paper grocery bag for about a year (mark the bag with the date they were packed). Usually they come out with little or no checking and best of all they’re FREE!!
