Any trip to the lumberyard is a good time. It feels like a place of possibilities. All that wood just waiting to be planed and shaped into a piece of furniture, except for those unlucky scraps that get tossed in the burn pile.
Anyway, I picked up about 200 BF of QS white oak for the kitchen remodel. Took just under 3 hrs travel and pick up time. I’m trying to keep track of cost for this project. So with tax, the wood came to $3.31 a BF. I’ll probably need only 75 BF or so for the face frames, and doors.
Also got a new bandsaw blade in the mail yesterday to help with the resawing for the panels. It’s a 1 1/2 in carbide tipped beauty. It should last several years.
Was a bit of a challenge to install the blade though. It’s the largest my bandsaw will take. Jet’s design for this one was a little lacking. But, I took off the lower guide and was able to get it on.
Hope it works well. I have never had good luck when resawing, but I’m optimistic with the new blade. We’ll see.
