    Re: Jelutong wood

    It helps if you tell where you are from, so people from your area can direct you accordingly. I would say that an internet purchase of such a piece of wood would come with a hefty shipping tag, so I would first look for a local (or semi local) company first.

      Re: Jelutong wood

      Do a google search of both 'hardwoods' and 'Carving woods' and you will find numerous places that sell jelutong, the difference will be quality and price...big differences in the prices!! Have heard jelutong is losing popularity because of a potential to have agent orange in it> Don't know where I read that? ???

        Also read somewhere that that wood comes from Malasia so I would guess that it would be expensive.

          I bought a piece from Woodcraft, but can't remember if they had any in that size. It is a light weight wood so shipping wasn't too bad.

            I have a piece that is about the size you mention, but it isn't light by any means. Also, mine was quite expensive. I had to cut mine off the end of a large plank and pay by the board foot.

            I bought mine at the local furniture-grade wood store (not Home Depot or Lowe's, etc.). I think I just lucked into it. However, I have yet to put a knife to it....

                Here's a link to one dealer on-line. No doubt there are others. I've bought various woods on eBay before, you might look there. I've never found the shipping to be so expensive as to make my purchase a bad deal, but you need to know what you're willing to pay up front.

                  I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                  John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
