    and now it starts....

    over the last couple of days i've been picking up the lumber for the upcoming projects. picked up the walnut, cherry, and hard maple for a dozen cutting boards, then the walnut and hard maple for six drunken cheese boards. next, i picked up the white oak for almost all of the smaller parts of the furniture, and today i picked up the white oak (rift sawn, and bookmatched) for the tops for the dining table, computer desk, display cabinet, and dresser. in the next couple of weeks (once the bonus is in), i'll be picking up the other 70 boards for the furniture parts.

    Those would make a dandy farmhouse style table!

    It's a bit far too transport though. I'm still kicking myself a little, there were two 30" wide 3" thick walnut slabs in the paper here for $200 ea that I passed up on. That could've been my new kitchen table (they were green though and the uncertainty of waiting for them to dry for several years scared me off.

    picked up a few more small parts for the furniture project today. knocking down the next bite to a touch under $900. so far, in small parts, $68, big boards $410 (wide, long, and bookmatched for tops), total so far, $478.

    as all good things will, the process of obtaining the white oak has changed. instead of going to a closer guy, i'll be making a road trip to albert lea (a little over an hour's drive) to pick up the lumber. as with all good things, the price went up a bit too. oh well, gotta roll with it. sent out the down payment for the 350 bf of white oak today, rest will be turned over to them upon my picking it up. today i picked up the poplar for the signs. i scaled it back a bit to 24 signs, and picked up the paint for them at the borg, the usual red and green. i got a bit of a deal on the paint. i was going to pick up 4 quarts at $11, and the paint gal said i would do better with gallons at $12. $44 vs $24, not too brilliant at times, but i know a deal when i see one.
