    sandalwood

    Is it possible to get any? Has anyone ever worked with it? I always loved the smell of it....

    I had some once and it smelled like dirty feet...

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    So you are giving up woodworking and trying your hand at being a cobbler?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Nice try Santa Claus Face. I'm not giving up woodworking--I'm just getting warmed up! You're not getting rid of me so fast.

    But I do love the smell of sandalwood and wondered if anyone ever uses it anymore. Apparently Don doesn't enjoy the smell as much as I do....

    I have never smelled sandlewood, but bet it is better than the boots.

    Not exactly sure which type of Sandalwood you are looking for but a quick google search turned up these results for the fragrant variety.

    I was interested in getting some for carving and gave up, but unless you have a friend in India, I think that you'll get only pen blanks or small pieces.
    Best regards,
