No. dadiOH was saying that where your wood was grown will affect the
growth rings (the width corresponding to the amount of spring/summer
growth, versus winter growth (the darker part)).
I know that the season in which one cuts the wood affects whether the
bark stays on easily or not. IIRC, if there is sap close to the cambium
layer, then the bark can release (fall off) easier.
There were some sidetracks in this thread. I host this helps to clear
things up. I already designated dadiOH I the person with the most
knowledge on the matter. So I have let him answer before me.
Jackel Enterprises in watsonville. I get oak there, often for less than $3/bf. I
buy most of my wood there.
Claro is available from Baker in gilroy, but $$$. Nice, wide slabs tho.
Global Wood Source in Santa Clara:
Don't know anybody in CA directly and not even sure where in CA Central
Valley is, but...
a) rent a trailer and
b) surely there's a local cabinet shop or other large user from which to
find their sources and
c) unless really, really need it for a few specific surface pieces, I
find 1C is a much better buy.
