My local Woodcraft (Cincinnati) is running its Black Friday special all this week (as are all Woodcraft’s I believe) and this store has a special buy on Red Gum. 6/4 for .99 a board foot. First off, is this a good price? Second, does anyone have experience with Red Gum? It is my understanding that it is the heart wood of the gum tree and similar in color to Cherry. (4/4 Cherry is on sale for 2.99 and 4/4 Red Oak for 1.99).
Am thinking about turning some pens and making some end-grain cutting boards.
