    sounds fair. Is it dryed, rough sawn or planed?

      What's the thickness?

      There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

        Sounds like a great deal. It is pretty wood.
        Be carefull with that stuff though . Use lots of dust collection as well as a high quality dust mask. Some people are alergic to it . I am one of them.

          I often use 1/4" aromatic cedar for jigsaw puzzles, primarily our Christmas card puzzles. I get it from Wildwood Designs. When they have it in stock, it's about $7 for a sheet 16" x 24".

          As Bill says, wear a dust mask when cutting cedar. Other woods don't bother me, but I cough all night if I don't protect myself with cedar. The result smells good, though!

              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
