Topic tags/keywords: quarter sawn beech molding plane

Decided recently to build molding planes, then found out basically no one sells thick QS beech. Only source I found is a guy on ebay who doesn’t have any now. Anyone have suggestions? I’d rather not laminate.

Try looking online for a sawmill in your area. Or see if johnsons hardwoods will ship to you. Look online for johsons hardwoods

How thick do you need it? I will be sawing some this summer, but it will take a while to dry it. I have some persimmon if you want to try that.

Crosscut hardwoods Seattle has 8/4 beech in stock…...

I like buying from them they are straight up and knowledgable….
