waste blocks

Carol - now in NC Nebraska
>Wally taught me to use waste blocks to get the most of out my turning blanks. I got all this lovely wood for Christmas and I want to get the most out of it!

Problem is I can't get any alder or soft maple or poplar around here to make some waste blocks.

Would someone be interested in sending me some 6/4 alder or soft maple or poplar to fit a Priority Mail box? I want to make waste blocks in the neighborhood of 3-5" in diameter.

PM me if you are game.

Alternative is I am going to Kearney, NE on Monday. Anybody know a place there I could get some?

Thanks.
