Ever had one of those days?

Went to the lumber yard to pick up a block of cherry, managed to walk out with $40 worth of walnut, mahagony and red oak but no cherry.

Looks like ill be going back soon...

Every?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

My first few hours today was spent trying to figure out how I was going to fix the things I screwed up over the weekend. Next few hours was spent doing just that.

I would notice one thing that was not quite 'right' - fix that one and then in the process see something else that was not 'right' and have to fix that as well.

About the only 'bright side' of today was catching the problems and fixing them BEFORE the project got further along and then finding the mistakes...

I've got a rough 5/4 cherry board you can have. But I can't get it before I bring you the other pieces of wood tomorrow.

Where'd you go for wood?

I wanted some 8/4 walnut and maple for making butcher blocks. I came home with both of these pallets of walnut plus a little more for $100 and I still don't have any 8/4 maple.

Op, its the only place close enough for me to justify a llw-volume pickup. Still stupidly overpriced though

I needed some plywood for building a miter saw support. I went to the local cabinet shop and bought a 1/2 sheet of the good maple plywood for $20. I got home and decided it was too nice to use for that project, and went back and bought a lower grade of plywood.

He had that stack of ash and asked if I would take it all for a really low price. A little over 200 bf for $150. I have some pieces to make soon to match other existing dark stained oak so it was perfect.

But I had to climb up here to get it...☺. It was fun actually and the guy was a really great guy. Totally great morning.
