I have not had much time to share anything going on in my woodworking life lately. My wife and I purchased a 15,000 sqft building about 3 1/2 years ago. So far the building houses a 1700 sqft 3 bedroom apartment we live in currently, and my shop at about 3200 sqft. We are turning one 2200 sqft section of the building into a Gluten Free Bakery my wife will run, as she is a master baker. Anyway I am making hardwood flooring for the Bakery and the area directly above the bakery that will become our home. So I have been looking for a good deal on a hardwood for the flooring and the display cabinets for the retail sales area. I came across a great deal of 6,000 bdft of mixed species 4-5’ lumber
for .80 cents per bdft. needless to say I nabbed it up. After piling it up I am even more excited the lumber is all premium grade, almost no defects. the wood is simply beautiful. I ended up receiving Ash, Hard Maple, soft Maple, Hickory, Cherry, Birch. The little bit I have started planning is awsome.
I still have 2 packs in my trailer to unload where am I going to put it. Normally it would go in my storage area
but my wife has it kind of full with bakery stuff.
It sure does smell good though. I also just received my order for sheetgoods about 40 sheets of Baltic Birch
10 sheets of domestic maple plywood, MDF, and all the countertop substrate and adhesive.
My shop is running over with material right now. And even though most of it is already planned for projects
it just feels good to not have to scrounge for a piece of plywood.
Thanks for taking the time to read and especially comment.
Have a blessed weekend and fun making some dust, Todd
