    when i stopped by my local lumber supplier yesterday, i was originally looking for some cherry and hard maple to make some cutting boards with the leftover walnut from my nephew's table. one of the guys mentioned that they had some good narrow boards bundled up to sell cheap. i picked up 2 of them for $20, and there was a bunch of santos mahogany, hard maple, some red oak, and a species i wasn't too certain about, and a bunch of others. i may get a dozen cutting boards out of this, rather than the original six.

    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    It just thrills my heart when someone see's some scrap - and turn's it into something useful and makes a few bucks in the process.

    Awesome score.

    There used to be a hardwood dealer down the street from me selling the same sort of cutoff's. I miss that.
