Thanks for the replies. I have been buying units of 2’x6”x3/4” cedar fence boards (10 cents ea). I’m making decorative panels for backdrops for churches, weddings and parties. I have been cutting the boards in half with table saw/Bandsaw then running them through the DeWalt planer. I would like to start working with wider boards. My great grandfather used to do a lot of woodwork in the early 1900’s. He did what is known as hobo art. He used a lot of 1/4” stock to make things as small as jewelry boxes to tv tables. So I have a desire to make a lot of customized boxes out of solid 3/8to 1/2 thick. I also would like to make inlay banding and boxes like Matt Furjanick from does. For now a lot of the projects I’m making will be made out of cedar, pine and Doug fir( my 4’ wide 8’ tall panels have s4s 2×4’s & 2×6’s for supports). I know someone that has a bunch of walnut being kept dry under a tarp that I have access to. It’s pretty rough now. If I remember correctly it’s about 12”-16” wide by 2” thick by about 8’ long. My little delta has 1/2 up and 6” resale. Looking to get a 8” jointer and put a Byrd on the DeWalt. ☺
