Rather than make room in my shop by finishing something, I went to the lumber yard and spent a half- hour picking through the offcut bin. Got about 10 BF of knotty, but really pretty butternut for $25. Got a piece of qswo that’s big enough to make 5 moulding plane blanks out of for $10 (stabilized qswo might work as well as anything else I can get, that’s an upcoming experiment), plus a chunk of straighter-than-I-expected ash for $12 that could make over a dozen spindles if I ever decide to do a stick chair.

Pretty good shopping run, I think.
