Free wood is good wood
So through a chamber of commerce that I am a member of, i met someone who works at a furnature maker. They specialize in Cherry. He hooked me up with the owner, who gave me a box today of Cherry and White Oak scraps from their products. He said they also have a ton of maple when I want it.
They should never run out of scraps for me as long as the company is around, and the owner was a nice guy. In addition I found out that their home building company is building a house for my cousin, plus revavating a house for another cousin. So for the cash he is making off of them, he should be happy to give me scraps.
I will bring him leftovers from Sat. On the menu: Brisket, 2 Chuck roasts, 2 BCC, 2 Fatties, and ABT's
The wood is in plank form so I will cut it with what limited tools I have, and get it in planks about 6 inches long by 2 inches.
