Topic tags/keywords: cutoffs

Ok LJ’s. I trust this place more than the store reviews. Has anyone on here bought this. Is this a good buy or no? I have zero hardwood planks on hand. Do not a band saw yet, so resawing my own stuff for small pieces is out of the question. (I have maple and some oak and some pine branches here for turning projects). At the moment I need pieces for either small projects or jigs, I’m tinkering for now and having fun nothing real serious yet.

I bought it a while back as a means to get my hands on some different woods. (had only used pine and poplar at the time) I was overall not very impressed. A trip to the local hardwood dealer is far more informative, fun, and you could probably get better, yet still very cheap cut-offs (which will be significantly bigger) It depends what you’re looking for, though. It comes with some templates for cutting out animal shapes and such. Could be used for some small projects, but probably not jigs since I don’t think there was a piece over 12’’.

Riz—FWIW, I would go for the tools first and practice of scrap. Once you are comfortable with the tools, you can pick up all kinds of rough lumber and make your own stock.

My hardwood dealer will often throw in a few cutoffs when I buy a piece or two.
