Names Jack, i'm an aircraft hydraulics mechanic by trade, interested in cabinetry. Currently in the middle of redesigning and building some new cabinets for my garage, trying to get things organized. But sense i cant stick with one project for too long i have now started getting into building my own hand planes, mostly research and planning at this point but....i have some wood from a couple trees i cut down in my yard that were already dead so i have no idea what kind of wood it is or if its hard enough to use for what im doing, but it has a lot of nice coloration, so im working on a few pieces of that right now.
If any body can help identify this stuff id appreciate it, or if there is some place else i should be asking that please let me know.
Thanks and i look forward to learning from some more experienced folks.
Our local Woodcraft is having some sort of parking lot sale and one of those "everything you can fit in a basket is 15% off" memorial day sales. The jointer might be a tight fit in one of their handheld baskets, but where there's a will, there's a way.
