    Not being in France myself, can't tell you any local spots but I would think a google search of "buy exotic woods" or whatever species you need would put you on the right path if you wish to buy online.
    Good luck!

      Simon, hopefully a French or other European member will respond. If one of us Americans (US/Canada/Mexico) answered, you couldn't afford the shipping!

      Good luck!

            I as a rule use about 400 F and watch it closely and remove it from heat at the desired shade. It goes pretty fast especially cherry. The color will be through out the wood so you won't get light spots when you sand.
            There is quite a bit of info online just do a search.

                I invested in a bandsaw and now get off cuts from my local wood yard, cut them to the thickness I need, sand them and scroll, off cuts are usually free.

                  My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                  Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                  Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
