Diving or Tip-Toeing In
Well, the time comes in every beginners woodworking life when he must decide put away little projects and build something big. I am now contemplating building a bed, which is my first big wood working project. I will be buying my hardwood, probably oak, maybe cherry, from a hardwood dealer, not a big Home Improvement store. Question, do I need to plunk down a big chunk of money and buy all the wood at once or should I buy enough to last me a week and then go back for more? I do not have a truck but I believe for a small fee they will deliver if I bought all-at-once. Can I trust them to pick out the wood or do I need to go there and pick out each piece? Remember, this is my first time buying wood from a hardwood dealer (Okay, truth be told I did but one piece of cherry that was six feet long by 8 inches wide just for the thrill of it) and I am not sure what to expect. Finally, should I go all in and buy quarter sawn vs plain?
