« Part 1: Kind of Commission #1 Part 2 of My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table series Part 3: The legs are milled to rough sizes »

Well it was an early morning this morning, so I could go and pick up some cherry and some poplar. Overall I think I did pretty well. Here are the Five boards I picked out.
1. Cherry: 3/4” x 5 1/4” x 98”
2. Cherry: 3/4” x 7 5/8” x 123 1/2”
3. Cherry: 3/4” x 7 3/4” x 128 1/2”
4. Cherry: 1 1/8” x 5 1/2×122 1/2”
5. Poplar: 1/2” x 6 1/8” x 129 1/2”

The total cost to get the boards and have them planed was $110. I got enouch wood for two tables and still have some extra wood for other projects. So today is an overall amazing day. The bad thing is I have to let the wood sit for about 2 weeks so I cant wait to start working with it. Here are the best pics of the wood I could get, I made a lumber rack out of rope…........

Haha yes I wanted to come home and start milling it to length and width but I dont want to risk ruining the wood so in my mind it is worth saving $100

That’s a cool storage idea. Looking forward to seeing the progress!
