Topic tags/keywords: bubinga cherry maple walnut zebrawood

I have a contact located in Oceanside. Cabinet maker. He has an overflow of off-cuts that he wants to get rid off. Its good stuff. Mostly Figured Maple, Bubinga, Cherry, Walnut, Leopard & Zebra. Most of it is planed (3 sides) 1/2” and 3/4” but some of the Maple and Bubinga are 1”. The thicker stock is between 8” and 36” long and varies in width up to 12” wide (most are 4”-5” wide). The 1/2” stock is mostly between 8” and 18” long. He has a container that holds about 7 board feet. You can fill it with whatever you want for $20. If you do smaller projects like myself its really nice. I wont give out his name or phone number on a public forum like this but if you PM me I will give you the info.

This is examples of what I got from him before.
