I just got back from a lumber run in Fort Worth. I saw some absolutely gorgeous Mexican Walnut for sale. if you are interested, Barney Robinson Hardwoods on Lancaster Street has several pallets of it. At $6.95 bf it’s a pretty good deal. I didn’t get any simply because I could not haul it. But I’m here to say it was some mighty fine looking lumber.

Thanks Betsy I’ll have to go on Monday to check it out. I’ve got a couple of tables and some pic frames to knock out. I might want to utilize the Mexican walnut for those. My fingers are becoming more useful now and I am about ready to get back in the shop. While I was recuperating I used my time buying some new toys, I mean tools. I bought a Tormek system (with most of the jigs). a new porter cable 4212 dovetail jig. A Porter Cable 893k ( duel base 2-1/4 hp) router. A Porter Cable low profile random orbital sander. a 6 piece set of Robert Sorby turning tools. A 2 speed grinder. The wolverine and the 2 jigs for it. A 13 piece set of freud Router bits. A granite stone to flatten the soles of my hand planes. And the big toy is a Jet 16-32 drum sander. Be on the look out for some new Saw Stop ads. My name and testimonial are supposed to be going into one. See You at the store Mam. Once again, Thanks for the tip.
