Purchased some Alder yesterday
From the local lumber yard whew $5.07 per board foot.
Oh well onto my question in the lumberyard the Alder was stored inside in an area where they have 2 big door open all day & it is unheated & about 50-60 degrees & my shop is around 60 degrees do you think I could go ahead & mill it with in a little over 24 hours? In the past I have waited 1-2 weeks but would like to get started sooner.
I have jointed one edge on 3 of the 4 pieces the 4th I'll need to straight line rip just a little off & then joint the edge.
I did get a little better quality material this time than I did last time, there was a little more to choose from & I was able to pick & choose.
This is another project for my Dad. I wish & had the patience to learn Sketch Up, Oh well I broke out the drawing board T-square & triangle & drew up the basic face frame configuration & wrote in the measurements for it & the cabinet boxes.
