        Kentucky Coffeetree is just one of the many names for this wood. I worked on the railroad for 41 years an didn't know that it is sometimes used for making railroad ties. I seen it at the store today and it is very nice looking but now not to sure how it will cut. Tryed to post a link to the web site were I got the info but this site would go away each time I tryed. Here is there address: woodworkerssource.com The wood is used for a lot of different things besides ties.

                  4/4 means the wood is a full inch thick.

                    Nice haul for a great price. Now mark the ends with species so you don't forget next year what wood is what.

                        Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is ‚Äútemporarily...

                        New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                        I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.

                        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....
