  • Where is Cheap Wood?

    Hi,
    I'm new to carving and want to get cheap carving stock. In paticular I would like basswood, and white pine. Does anyone know where I can get them green? I want to get them as cheap as I can like from a sawmill that sells green basswood, and or white pine. I dont't care if they are in logs with all the bark on however I can get the wood cheapest. I live in
    Wilkes-Barre, PA. Please help, thank you

I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you...

    And to do something different. I’m trying to schedule part or a whole day to bowl grinding. Of course, we had a 7 year old visitor most of the day as he had a half day today. So much for using the grinder. instead I put a bandaid on a scratch on his elbow so he “wouldn’t bleed to death”. Than...
