Subject:
$750 worth of wood *PIC*

Mkauder, Phenix City, AL
>One advantage of doing segmented turning, is that I work with wood that is already kiln dried.

The disadvantage of doing the exotics is the expense. Two weeks ago, I went up to Atlanta Wood Products and stocked up on my turning stock. Here is a picture of when I got home. All the wood it 8/4. from Left to right they are - Yellowheart, Canarywood, Walnut, Basswood, Goncalo Alves, and Wenge Not shown in the picture is a piece of Paduak the same size as the Walnut. All told it came to a little over $750. Not all are exotics, obviously, but what I work with.

Thought it might be interesting.
