    Denatured Alcohol 5 gal. @ Ace Hardware

    Thanks to Kevin G., a tip he gave a while back. I ordered a 5 gal. pail of denatured alcohol from Ace Hardware. Ordering this way it works out to less than $10 a gal.. Buying it per gal. the price varies between $11 and as high as $17 per gal.
    If you should order the 5 gal. pail, they have two brands, you want the Parks brand (not the Crown brand). Parks is primarily ethanol, to where the Crown is a 50/50 split of ethanol and methanol.

    Kudos to Dave Smith for all the hard work he put into the Alcky method of drying wood.

    There's a ww store in Phoenix that caries DNA for $25 for 5 gal. I don't know the mixture since there arn't a lot of green trees around to dry out turniing stock.

    Yeah Don, one of the nice things about living in Phoenix is that all your trees are pre-dried, even before you cut them down.

    They have Trees in Phoenix, I thought they only had bushes and shrubbery
