  • Question for Utahns

    Anyone here in Utah know where to buy good scrolling wood? I'm looking for somewhere that carries everything from the plywoods to the hardwoods to the exotics. I'd like to have somewhere locally that I can buy from so I can pick and choose each piece, pick colors and grains, and avoid shipping charges. I've found mills that carry rough cut stock, but since i dont have planers and joiners, I want woods that dont require alot of prep and sanding.
    Thanks for any info.

    Gosh Heliotropic. I wish I had a place here in the mojove deseart too. its not to hard to order online. sometimes you can get free shipping. i too love to look at my wood before buying. but its just not availabal here. do you have a Rockler or Woodcraft store nere you? if not here is there web sights. www.rockler.com and www.woodcraft.com and like i said in a other post. sloan's. is good too. www.sloanswoodshop.com they will send you catalogs too. even if you don't wont to order online. its fun to get all those wood working catalogs in the mail. I get tons. and love and save them all from tools, to sand papper. your friend Evie

      Thanks for the reply.
      I checked out the websites and there isnt a Rockler in my state but turns out there IS a Woodcraft store. Guess I'll have to go check it out!
      Thanks again.

        Don't know if this will help, the web site seems to have lost some of it's support:

                This looks something like your saw? I bought it at lowes about January 2008. It was listed at $170 then, but mine was a demonstration model without the cardboard box, so I got it for $120. I recall they had a cheaper brand listed for $119, which was what I originally planned to buy. I don't recall...

                Not quite carved, although I did go overboard a bit using my Dremel to smoothen the edges of the 'ropes'. Still they were cut out piece by piece, sanded/smoothed and glued into place....

                While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

                THe plans were designed for 1/2...
