I am brand new at this and looking for small pieces of good woods for the making of cutting boards.
I have made some with purple heart, padauk, walnut and bamboo and they came out quite nice.
Now, I plan to experiment with larger boards, which could be what I may like to do repeatedly but, to make sure I can do a better job than the people around, I need to buy some wood pieces, which would allow me to play a little without going broke.
If there is someone out there, who has some 1” thick pieces of good and hard woods and would like to be rid of them, I would like to discuss taking them off your hands.
The pieces should be no less than 24’ long and the width span should be something normal like 3, 4 or 5” wide.
I am always looking for pieces so this retired man can finally find a way to do these things and enjoy them.
Otherwise, if anyone knows where one can get good hard lumber at a decent price, I will appreciate finding out.
It is hard to be new and afraid to pay too much for the basic materials while I practice.
Please let me know if interested.
