So back from Macbeath where I picked up 8bf of red oak for $28 with tax. Hard to beat that. Question, tho. I’ve only ever bought S4S from Home Depot before, and this stuff is S2S 1E. I assumed that the cut edge would still need to be run through a jointer, but the guy at Macbeath assured me that it’s absolutely ready for the table saw, and a jointer wouldn’t be required – just rip it using the “finished” edge, then flip it and run the other side through?

In other news, I look forward to when I have a (lot) more experience and confidence. The padauk and bloodwood they had in stock was absolutely gorgeous, but didn’t want to pay $11 a foot when I’ll likely make an absolute mess of it! ;)
