What did you use to finish this table. I love that high gloss and might want to do something similar for a new desk
Me too Mike.I paid premium money for flute wood. I got it. It was beautiful BUT warped...Red flamed box elder.... I don't do that anymore..It was from an individual...I only buy from people I know somewhat or a business...Expensive lesson...I dont even go to that site anymore......This wood that Curt bought looks really good! at a great price I think !Looks like good lumber, when I have tried to get cheap lumber in the past I ended up burning it to keep warm.
I think you got an outstanding deal, mostly because the lumber appears to be outstanding.
Unlike some others here on the site, I advocate using water on a rag to raise the grain after sanding it. Tiny whiskers appear and they will play havoc with your finish.What did you use to finish this table. I love that high gloss and might want to do something similar for a new desk
Excellent. Glad it worked out. If i had room I’d go buy another 500 feet from him. Did he tell ya where he gets this lumber from and why ?I ended up with about 120 linear feet of oak and maple. Boardfoot wise I grabbed about 80 which puts it at $1.50/bf on avg. He has had the wood for about two to three years and is always looking to sell any or all. He was very patient with me and I believe i was there about an hour. The pieces I selected were 4/4 to 6/4, ranged from 4.5 to 9 inches wide (most around the 6-7in like Curt said) and were from 6ft to 12ft long (most around 8ft).
Shawn is about 8 miles east of Lenoir close to US-64. I told him I would pass along his number like Curt did but by PM.
