Hi.

I thought I would share with you my method of sourcing good quality timber.

Well EBay is my answer and not buying raw timber but buying furniture like the one I picked up today.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201030613704?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

Hopefully the link works.

But the item number is 201030613704.

It's dry and easy to mill down using a small bench saw.

And to buy that much timber would cost me approx £130.

There is a thin coat of clear varnish on the surface but because it's hard wood it does not penetrate to deep. Less then a 1mm.

 

 

Regards Antony.

What a great idea. Several years ago a modeler I know was out walking his dog and he saw his neighbor getting rid of a dinner table. His neighbor said it was getting to old and scratched and he was tired of it. My friend offered to take it off his hands. So they hauled over to his garage. He had a very large supply of aged cherry that he has been cutting down for several years now. That old furniture was made from solid wood no particle board or mdf.
