Thanks CW. I'm new to the area, again nothing like good word of mouth
;-) I'll check them out next week. BTW my 1st project is a wood base
for a glass dining room table, 42" x 72". Now that I have a source for
the wood, I need to find/price the top. One place (Cascade Glass on
Nickerson in Seattle) has quoted me $560 for a 1/2 thick top, delivered.
Have you ever had occasion to buy such a thing in the area?
A couple of others in the area worth mentioning are Hardwood Supply out
in Redmond, Sumner Woodworking, Portland also has Gilmer, probably the
largest of the bunch.
Welome to the NW Dan, if you get that glass table top just add
sandpaper and you have a place to sharpen your chisels and plane irons
Thanks for the recommendations & the welcome! Moved here from central
Ohio, my wife & I LOVE IT! ESPECIALLY the WEATHER! And one thing I've
found is people sure are friendly here, which seems to extend to the
local woodworkers. I'll definitely look into the sources you suggest.
Across the street from Crosscut Hardwoods is Compton Lumber. They have
a big stock of the more common hardwoods and they carry s4s, if that's
what your into. I like Crosscut better for exotics and they have a more
service oriented staff. If you are measuring goodness of a wood dealer
by pricing though, neither of them has struck me as a great bargain.
Neil-Thanks for the insights. Since my shop is pretty minimal at the
moment (I had a Delta jointer, but had to sell it before moving here,
along with my Unisaw) so the s4s is just what the dr. ordered at the moment!
I haven't had a chance to check out Crosscut yet. I buy most of my
hardwood from Edensaw out in Port Townsend as I live in the West side of the
Sound. They have a store in Kent as well on south 194th st; website is
www.edensaw.com. They were featured on the Lumberyard episode of Modern
Marvels on the History Channel, IIRC. No connection, just a satisfied
