I’ve been lame, lame, lame about posting lately. There’s been much going on including our very stalled kitchen project. But I have a ton to blog about so more frequent posting going forward.
In the meantime, I thought I’d do a quick debrief on our trip to the Port Townsend Edensaw Lumber yard a couple of weekends ago. Five of us went: Anne Briggs (anneofalltrades.squarespace.com), Ananda Dorje @a_dorje, Mike Lingenfelter (@mike.lingenfelter) and Glen Thompson (thisweekinwood.com). Frankly, I’m a pig in mud when it comes to lumber yards in Seattle. We have several really nice lumber yards and wood suppliers.
But when I really want something special, I journey over to Port Townsend to Edensaw. These guys cater to the boat building crowd so they have some special stuff. For example, I was looking for some quarter sawn maple to make my miter jack and sure enough they had a nice 5″, 8′ long stick.
I also wanted a wide piece of maple for my leg vice chop upgrade to a Benchcrafted Crisscross. They had a really nice 12″ 12/4 piece that I also took home.
Can’t wait to get to these projects as well as several others I have stacked up.
