Well my finger is healed up and I am ready to learn some new things.

In my down time I purchased a Porter Cable 4212 Dovetail Jig from Woodcraft and it will be here Monday.

Now I need a place to buy some exotic wood that is inexpensive. I can use scraps if anyone has any they want to sale. I can make a list of the wood species that I would like to try out if I need to. I know they are better in person than looking at a Picture.

The only places I know of are Rockler, Woodcraft, Ebay, and a few places in MI that sale exotic wood. There is nothing close to where I live except for the top two Home Improvement stores and a Cyprus lumber yard.

I have purchased a scrap cutoff box off of the internet but the variety was not that great.

Please let me know if you have some scraps you can sale me or any website that has a good selection with reasonable pricing.

Thank you!

I’m not sure what you are asking for. Are you asking for little scraps just to see the wood before deciding to buy that wood in bigger sizes? If so, I can probably help you. I’m “in” to exotic woods and I have lots of little scraps (less than 1” x 1” x 2”). Send my a pm.

Another option – if you want to get exposed to lots of different exotic woods, some e-bay sellers offer packages of pen blanks with 10 or more different woods per package.
