I just ntoiced in their flier. Sale price is $3/bf.
I don't normally buy wood there becuse it is ussualy more expensive than my
local hardwood dealer. At this price though it is a pretty good value
beacuse the stuff I have seen anyway is good quality, (clear and straight.)
I might just have to go stock up for winter.
I was just kidding. I've made a lot of stuff from red oak. The best was
rift sawn stock that I purchased for some clocks per advice in the article
in the recent Popular Woodworking. I'm sure I paid more than $3/bf for it.
I just received the same flyer from ROCKLER with the 3/4" red oak at
$3 a BF. I was thinking about making the 45 minute drive to the
nearest store to check out the quality and possibly make a purchase.
I have shoped at all three, but I prefer Centennial. They are a little
closer (to me), in my opinion friendlier, and have good wood at good prices.
I have been in there enough now that they almost always give me some sort of
discount. (I don't even ask. They just do it.)
Thanks - Joe. One more if you don't mind: Sharpening?
I'm on the north end of town and thinking about trying someone with a nice
yellow-pages ad up in Loveland. But do you have a favorite blade sharpener
Again - thanks!
We use Childers Sharpening Service off Broadway. We've been using them for
years and they do a superb job.
