I have visiting Lumberjocks for years and have learned a lot from reading and following the posts. Last month I signed up as I wanted to be able to post and ask for help or maybe even offer my input and eventually share some of my projects as I get better in my work.
So here is my 1st post on Lumberjocks.
I am in need of some lumber to work this. I have several projects in mind to work on this winter. I am looking for some finished lumber to restock my supply.
What I need is S3S or S4S lumber that is ½” or ¾” thick, 4 to 8” wide and 24 to 36” long.
I am hoping that there is someone out there and can help me find or sell me some wood that I can use. I do not have a planer to mill down to the thickness I need. I have looked at getting a thickness planer but it is not doable right now. I do have a great Grizzly table saw and other tools but I have a small work shop. I am in a rural area with no real place to purchase lumber except for the big box stores and they do not carry this kind of lumber around here.
I would like to get some Maple and Walnut to have on hand but I am open to other varieties if you have suggestions. In the past I have purchased cutoffs and such and that has served me well. So I am open to this as well, however, I would like to build some clocks and small tables for my brothers so longer lengths would be great.
Send me a PM if you have something I would be interested in or know of a place that is reasonably priced. I have found out that I need to have posted several times before I can respond to a PM (I think) so if you do PM me please include a email address. I know that shipping might be a deal breaker but on the other hand choices are limited in Southern Idaho.
Thanks in advance.
