If I had a wish list it would be for a planer, joiner and a band saw. I recently found out the a local pallet shop will sell me a truck load of slabs for $10.00. As much as I can fit in my truck! I can’t take advantage of this without the tools to work it up. My two hold backs are price, just can’t afford them yet, and space, I have a very small basement shop.I know they have a variety of local woods as a few years ago I had three silver maples removed from my yard and the cutter asked if I wanted to keep the wood. I said no and he cut it to length and sold it to the pallet shop. In my local area (southwest Virginia) I know they must get a lot of maples, walnut, oak pine, and locust. Probably many more.

-- We all make mistakes, the trick is to fix it in a way that says "I meant to do that".
