I know being locked down for some folks don't sit well. For me it is like locking me in an ice cream store. I probably have enough lumber in my shop to last me 100 years.

This is just some but not all of the boxes and baskets that I have made in the past couple weeks.

The 8-sided boxes as well as the two 8-sided baskets are made of ambrosia maple. The one box is made of birdseye maple with bloodwood top.

Most of these will be given to special kids.

Same here. I could probably go a few years wit the wood I've got stockpiled. But I'll add if the price is right or a need "something" I don't have.

As I've said before the Ambrosia Maple you have in stock is the best I've seen. I know part of how great your projects look is the wood but the craftsmanship is what puts them over the top.

Great projects Malcolm!

I'm in the same boat - went to get some more Oak recently and brought home a big pile of pretty, wide Cedar boards for just another $10! It's a very pleasant addiction...I have no intentions of stopping.

Bill,

That's a sure sign that your wood stash isn't near big enough. Better make immediate plans to buy up every good wood deal that you come across, and build that wood storage shed as soon as possible.
