I am brand new to LJ and was browsing the forums and noticed a Community Wood shop in LA, after searching the site and Google, I couldn’t find anything local here. I have always loved wood working and the past several years I have been making all my own christmas presents for my family.
This is the first year that I am going to be working with hardwoods are I am VERY excited. I have gotten some walnut and white oak for great prices at National Wood Products thinking that I would have access to a jointer and thickness planer. As it turns out I don’t have access to a jointer and I have some twisted boards I need to flatten before I send them through the planer.
Does anyone know if there are any places where one could get this done? I haven’t been able to find anything, I am a student up at the University of Utah and have been unsuccessful getting anyone to talk to me there, (I suppose they don’t let students use the wood shop for some reason). I was about to start to call some cabinet makers, but if at all possible I would prefer to do this myself, or at least be right there while it is being done. I this point, I don’t know where to turn.
Thanks in advanced LJ crew!
