Went to the wood store today to buy some material! 

TimberWife came with me today for the first time (to this particular supplier) and met my connection with Festool.  She took some pictures.

They have a huge warehouse right outside of their retail space, and if it's wood they can get it!

They have a huge selection of finishing type elements as well including edge banding/ veneer

Although I would like to spend all of my money to buy all of the things, today's mission was to pick a board with which to make a new project coming soon!  We settled on a gorgeous and reasonably priced piece of Teak.  I even got a long piece of hard maple that was a cutoff and therefore free!! This place is great. 

This place has some huge slabs, like this one, which run like $6k.  You can see Tracy's arm on the left/bottom since it's rotated (he's my primary contact) to give you an idea of the size!

 

I also got a new contact for slabs with a guy (from Tracy) that apparently has large and way more reasonably priced slabs, including thick pieces for fireplace mantles.  I can't wait to check it out! 

 

Keep chipping away!
