        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.

                        It took him a year to get rid of all the stuff for her. That actually cost Bruce a $5.00 donation to the club. All the attachments are Tormex. $35 was for everything. He’s quite happy.

                        I know Wausau from the boxes of paper in our office. They got 'Wausau paper' printed all over them. Always thought to hat was in China, though....

                        Welcome Ian from Reno Nevada! Glad to have you aboard. Some saws can be frustrating, and others we love. Lots of help available here.

                        $35 was a great price no matter what. Bruce definitely scored big time. And by the same token, the wife found new homes for her hubby's stuff that she had no use for. I'd rather sell cheap to someone who may actually use them than any other purpose.
