I know this is a dumb question, but what does hit and missed mean?

Also, I’m not looking to buy at the moment, but you seem to have a few items avaialble between this and the birdseye. Is it safe to assume that you would permit people to order some of both in one order?

Thanks for the post. It sounds like you are helping out a lot of people in the LJ community. I hope I can pick some up from you in the future.

Hit and missed is planed at high speed to flatten/take saw marks off to make it squarer going through a rip saw/to see what the firgure looks like and to have a uniform thickness.

There is no problem combining orders, no matter what species as long as i have it in stock, it is all in the same location.

Thanks Barlow. I was actually thinking it meant some had curl some didn’t so this is better. I’ll PM you in the future if it turns out that I will need some. It is 50/50 right now and after your glowing reviews before, I figure I’m safe to get some nice material.

Nice looking timber. Do you ever have turning blanks available?

i do not do turning blanks, this is just lumber sorted out behind my planer, the only thing near a turning blank would be the 6/4 which is hit and missed planed at 1.5” for platter turning and etc. I do not have a website, just contact me on here if interested.

Got mine on Friday evening. Very nice lumber, and nice figure. Looking forward to making some boxes out of it. =)
