It really pays to have good friends who need more shop space. My friend asked me if I’d like the left over European beech from his Roubo bench, and I was happy to jump at the chance. This left-over lumber amounted to over 200 bf. Most pieces are less than 3 inches wide, but there’s a few wider boards. Almost all of it us 10/4 and rift-sawn. There’s plenty of great table/chair leg material in there. I think I’ll use some of it to make a nice sharpening or joinery bench. What should I do with the rest?
Never miss an opportunity to snag some quality lumber….even if you don’t have the space. This is a good reason you should always keep your shop neat and tidy.
