I found a local cabinet shop that has tons of nice hardwood cutoffs that they sell for next to nothing. Mostly Maple, Oak and Cherry. Some hickory. A lot of the cut offs are in great shape and will work great for small boxes and crafts. The pieces with defects and knots will make good fire wood.

I like making boxes so I was going to use them for that. Thats the only planned use I have so far. There are some nice curly maple pieces in the stack which was nice to find.

Hi Alll,

I’m new to this site, the wife of a woodworker, and not quite sure yet how to navigate.:

I’m searching for burled silver maple cutoffs with which to surprise my husband. He is new to wood turning, and has gotten into making pens! However, burled silver maple is his favorite, and he can’t seem to find any. I’m wondering where I might find some in the DuPage County, IL area (Western Chicago suburbs.) It seems to take such little pieces to make a pen, I’m not sure why it’s so hard to find an old peice of wood!! :-) Thanks for any ideas, advice or offers!

Merry Christmas to all!
