I am looking for scraps that I can resaw and use for inlay work. My local woodworking store only sells large boards and I just don’t have the need or space for that. I currently only have maple, walnut, & cherry. All of my pieces are beginning to look like each other because those are the only woods I have. Anyone willing to part with those scraps they have been holding onto let me know.

You can get all kinds of pieces on Ebay. Sometimes for a great deal.

Just did a quick Google for custom cabinets and custom stairs in Columbia. Lots of hits. These places always have lots of scraps/cut offs- many just get burned. Make friends with the owner- you might get stuff for free.

If you are willing to pay postage I can send you some scrapes. I have a lot of small pieces of exotic woods. Just let me know.
