  • MacBeath Hardwood...

    I went and checked out MacBeath Hardwoods today...if your into hardwood that's the place to go, at least for me. I was a little disappointed because that's all they did have and nothing under an 1 inch. They did have the soft maple which is good...they did have different types of 1/8 and 1/4 inch hardwood plywood but you had to buy a 4 x 8 sheet and they were not cheap...

    I need an all round supplier! Aspen! just about every pattern I have suggest it....I also need 1/4 and 1/2 thickness....

    I need to wait to see what kind of wood my next project suggests....

    since I didn't buy any wood, I stopped by the tackle shop and picked up a couple new lures for my wife..It's our 11th year Anniversary tomorrow...

      You romantic fool you . . . is that how she "hooked" you?

      . . . because each piece will be someone's heirloom someday.

        Too bad we are so far away. Aspen is a common wood where I live. I have used 3/4 of this pile already. What doesn't show in the picture is that it is 3 to 6 boards deep in each layer (depending on width) . It's great for turning on the lathe as well as for scrolling .The price of shipping that far is pohibitive . If you lived closer I could have supplied some at a reasonable price.

        Happy 11th anniversary. We had our 48th last December.

        The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us

          William, not only do you do great work, you have an impressive stack of wood over looking some great scenery...

          Charlie, we've got 14 years invested but only 11 are official...

          Millwab, it all started a few years ago on Mothers day when I gave her a couple lures. now there know as her mother's day lures...
          we're heading to the lake next weekend for 5 day's and the guy at the tackle shop was showing me a couple killer set-ups that had been working really good at the lake that we are going too..
          as long as she catches a few 17 inch Kokanee or Salmon with them all will be good...

          like we needed more tackle..

            Hi Trout..have you tried Southern Lumber in San Jose? (off Monteray Hwy)..they have just about every possible type of wood and the place is huge!!
            I couldn't find Aspen in my area of Calif..but came to Canada and it's here in abundance..just bought a long board $1.78 (CAD) bf..cheaper then the clear pine..I was thrilled LOL

            happy Anniversary!

              Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

              by Tom in Ashland
              Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

              Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

              I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...
