Thanks Gary. I appreciate your comments. I follow and enjoy your build of SOS on this site as well.GaryM said:Stunning work. I just went through your log on the other site and am glad I found it again. Since this is a smaller site, your work is not lost as easily as on the msw site.
Thanks for dropping by Graham. I purchased all the wood I use from several exotic wood dealers in Canada and the US and millled the strips needed on my 9" band saw and Preac miniature table saw. Then the wood is processed through my home made thickness sander to final size. The wood is now 20 or more years old and stored in a closet in my workroom. The wood is seasoned and ready for use when I need it.Graham said:Fantastic work. I see you using woods such as Swiss Pear, Holly and Pau Marfim (had to look that one up). Do you season the wood yourself and then rip it or buy the strips in ready cut? Regards.
