So I have recently moved to Eugene to start grad school and would like to start doing some woodworking here, but as a starving student I’ve been scratching my head about where to find some interesting furniture wood for not a lot of money. Anybody have any useful tips?

A lot of us oregonians are getting into cutting up wood on the side, a little snooping around should get you in touch with a local private sawyer that may be able to help you out. Check into local wood guilds as well.

If by interesting you mean exotic, then you need to check out Cook Woods. They are in Klamath Falls and that is a very scenic 4 hour drive. They have some great stuff and they maintain an excellent website They are a little pricy but you get what you pay for.
