I went to the lumber yard to check out their plywood inventory. I think I have it narrowed down to either the UV China Birch Pre finished both sides or the domestic UV Maple prefinished both sides.
While there I checked out their "shorts" bin and it had a good supply of poplar (48 inches and under) which is 50% off regular price. I bought more than enough to build the face frames for the buffett destined for the dining room.
I still have a few things to do before getting started like modifying the TS rails for wider cuts, and finishing up a toy box and two other small projects.
I bought a 55 inch piece of 1x12 barn wood to make a picture frame with. Whew, that wood is expensive. Regardless, we are expecting our first great grandson in November and I am going to make a cowboy picture frame for his mother complete with barbed wire. He doesn't know it yet, but he is going to be a cowboy! :-)
So...the wheels are in motion. I may not be a cabinet maker yet, but pretty soon, I will be. :-)
