Thanks for the invaluable information Zoltan. I am using The Lumber Yard (click the link) for the source of wood in the US. Very good selection and quality of wood. Friendly, family oriented service operated by a family. Highly recommend!
Here is a pile of West Indian boxwood 734 board feet weight about 2 1/2 tons and this is how it is purchased at Lumberyard, also read again this topic about real boxwood, Costello boxwood is not real boxwood just a made up name.
I was looking for a couple different strip sizes over the past couple of weeks as I work on my Fair American. I have very little stock of wood strips. I have what came in the kit and I did get a couple of small packages of strips, but I cannot remember where I got them. What is the best way to go about getting some different sizes of strip wood. I am not familiar with all the different varieties. I have been reading Dave's post on different types of wood, but have no idea what I should try and stock.
