Re: Quartered lumber and technique comment

Warren in Lancaster, PA
about 80% of the world's hardwood lumber is harvested from the Appalachian Mountain chain

Seems a bit over done.

Here in Lancaster County we have a robust woodworking industry. Most of the rift and quartersawn stuff comes in large bundles. However they are available for amateurs, albeit more expensive. We get a lot of oak from the midwest.

There is also hardwood coming in from Europe, Africa, South America etc.
