I’ve sat and watched while a lot of my fellow LJ’s find amazing lumber for next to nothing.
This past weekend it was my turn. A somewhat local wood dealer was going out of business and was selling all his remaining turning stock for .25 to 1.00 a pound. I went with my wife (she’s the one who found out that he was doing this), we picked up quite a few items:
Forgot one: Black Cherry
+ two boxes of pen blanks. All told the haul was over 120 pounds of turning materials. I have not turned any of these types of wood before (except the maple). Looking forward to the experience and outcome (good or bad).
