Ah ha! another store to hit. Brazos.

I swang by Wood World at lunch and picked up Peruvian Walnut at $11.00 and some purple heart at $9.00. I didn’t need much. Their prices seemed a little lower than the others but the only price sheet I had was in my head so I wouldn’t depend on it.

Wood World had much better prices on Baltic Birch, I think… I’ll have to make sure.

I really look forward to visiting Brazos. In the meantime Wood World will be my ‘go to’ store for exotics unless Rockler has a sale on wood that I want to buy. I forgot what the price was but August is curly maple month. They had some pretty decent figured wood out on the floor.

Lynn Dowds antique tool sale in Garland? I’m intruiged. I have to do about an hour of work in the office tomorrow (high 5 area) so I’ll zoom out to Garland. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for Jordan.


I think that is a fantastic suggestion. I’m not set up to handle that type of system – but – I want to. It’s still early in my woodworking life. The other day I was looking at small mills. Uh oh!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
