Well I have been stocking up on some box making wood so that when and if I ever get done with this kitchen remodel I can get to work. I like to try different timbers that I haven't worked with before. Mix of 3/8 and 1/2 stock. Curly maple is pretty common but I like to buy it when I can find it and I love it on a box.

This is great stuff, I'm lucky I have a hardwood lumber company near by. They are a bit pricey, but I can pick out what I like. Looking at these great samples, I think I'm going to make a quick run over there.

Corey, I have to agree those are beautiful pieces of wood. My question is, what are the dimensions of them, other than 3/8" & 1/2" thick? I hope you get your remodeling done soon also. I want to see some boxes.

Hi Dave! The boards are all right at 4 inches wide, some a little wider, some a little smaller. They are between 20-24 inches long. Definitely enough to make a nice box and do some grain matching. I probably will get the kitchen done just in time for the garage to be real nice and hot and muggy .....LOL.

Hey thanks for that link Mike. Have you ordered from them before? Is there stuff straight and flat? I need that as as I have no jointer or planer. Thanks again for the link!

Corey,

You don't need a jointer or planer.... get yourself a couple of good hand planes and problem solved :sold:

Hey Bob, I have done that and it is something I don't relish, or mustard...or.... OK OK...

If I buy wood and the guy tells me it is flat and straight, it better be flat and straight :) I have had very good luck with:
