      I wonder if there is a Lumber Heaven in Southern Calif. it would be nice to find a place that has wood already milled down, that i could walk in an look at and take home. I do have the 1-ton truck and trailor.

        Good thinking, Evie!

          Cute Pattern.

          This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...
