John, I have been wondering when you would uncover that maple and be willing to part with some. I will have to arrange a visit very soon. Maybe this Sat. or Sunday??

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Hi Matt,

Lots of new stuff. Right now I have about 18,000 board feet of wood.

Lots of CNC router bits for wood. Most of them are insert types. Some shaper inserts cutter heads and molding heads.

I have a lot of African and Honduras mahogany strips that are 10’ to 12’ long. About 2,000 board feet. I can send you some photos and sizes if interested.

I also have a lot of large 1/2 round mahogany pieces. They are about 3’ long. They were turned on a lathe and then cut down the middle. It is difficult to describe them.

I will try to post some photos of these things.

BTW, how is the boat coming along? Hope you can get it in the water next spring.

Thanks, John

I visited John today and picked up some nice big leaf Maple that i can use for box tops and boxes. I also got a good deal on some Cherry and Mahogany 2×2’s for cutting boards. Had a good time talking about wood too. I did have to spend the night in Chico because of the snow. It was too hard to see to drive in the mountains. Worth it to get nice wood. Thanks again John. Sell some of that Aromatic Cedar and Oak so we can get to the rest of the maple!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
