    various projects such as furniture, etc
  1. I am new to this forum although I have enjoyed the WW before. I hope this topic/question is in the right area. I am about to begin a project building a workbench. the plans call for douglas fir but being on the east coast, supplies are limited. When I have found suppliers, they want a considerable amount of money for the wood. Does anyone have an idea for a good alternative? It has to be a clear grain and durable. Maple would be great, but I am pretty sure I would end up in divorce court or bankcruptcy court... haha. Thank you for any ideas! Wayne
