    Really nice job thinking outside the box with that eagle leaf pattern Rivari! Stay safe and know you have our THANKS today and every day for what you do.

    As a side note - Where do you get your thin wood stock in Wasilla?

      Howdy Bearfret,

      The basswood rounds come from Wal-Mart and the baltic birch I use comes from either Home Depot or Lowe's. There is a place in Anchorage that does sell more exotic woods though the name slips me at the moment.

      Good to see another Alaskan on the forum, keep posting and when I get out of the sandbox perhaps we can exchange more info on the local level.

        Rivari,

        Deal, lets get togther when you are back from your assignment.

        I've got a good stock of mixed hardwoods (domestic and exotic) in various thicknesses (1/8-3/4) on hand that you will be more than welcome to paw thru/take some home!

          Bearfret,

          Try Hardware Specialties. They have all the hardwood you need. But be ready to spend. They are pricey and only sell full-lenghth boards.

            Thanks Max/Dan!

            I've been there , close to my real job, and noticed they were very proud of their wood. I walked around and looked and was impressed with their stock. They don't, or didn't at the time, carry anything under 3/4". I asked if they had resaw capabilities and got some major attitude. I left and haven't been back.

            I've got a couple folks I buy from online that I met thru eBay. Real good folks, great wood, great price, and beats anything I've found in Anchorage hands down for price - and that includes the postage!

            Its good to hear from a fellow Anchorage-ite. Let me know if you are interested in getting together.
