As a few of you may remember from my few past posts I'm pretty new to
WW'ing and have a 100% neander shop . I'd like to know more about
some local services that are available here in Houston. Below are some
things I'd like to know more about, in more or less random order...
Saw sharpening services for handsaws? I sharpen my own edge tools
already and I'll probably eventually get setup to sharpen my own but at
the moment I'm more interested in making sawdust not metal filings.
Also I understand it's still possible to get good deals on old, high
quality handsaws at antique shops and flea markets, if I ever find a
few I want I'd prefer to have a pro do the initial resharpening and
Houston has a lot of flea markets and antique stores... anyone in the
area have any they've had good luck finding good old tools at?
Handsaws, planes, chisels etc...
Hardwood dealers you like?  I'd like to stick with S2S lumber for
time being if that makes a difference. I've bought some at the Rockler
on 59, probably paid too much but I don't feel ripped off since I
always get good service and advice there, and this was my first
hardwood purchase so I was happy for the helping hand.. anyway I
digress... I'd like to find other dealers in the area for the days when
I don't need a lot of handholding
Any other good resources for a new wood dorker in the Houston area
anyone can point me towards? I live in Meyerland, near Braeswood and
610, if that helps...
 Or as some prefer to call it the spare room of my apartment
 Googling for this is a nightmare and turns up more hardwood floor
shops than anything. I saw a list from the wreck in google groups
that's about a year old, but thought I'd ask again incase things have
 about 4BF each of Ash and Walnut, been playing with a scrap from
the Walnut to get a feel for it wow... what an amazing improvment it is
over the crappy softwood from the Borg I'd been using...
