Re: Plywood in NC, SC, or GA also Baltic Birch?

It looks like Hood Distribution also has a location in Greenville, SC which is only about an hour or so from here so that sounds like it could be a really good option. Thanks! If anybody else has any other ideas please keep em coming!

Plywood in NC, SC, or GA also Baltic Birch?

If anyone has any tips on finding some good plywood in my area I would appreciate it. I am in Western North Carolina. I found the Hardwood Store of NC and I think it is a strong possibility. I can be there and back in less than 6 hours and a tank of gas. I'm also wondering if there is a source betwe...

Re: Homemade Tool Cart

Stained and Minwax polycrylic on top. It's shiny you just can't tell in the picture. I used the same stuff on my wife's craft table but it finished satin. I'm not sure why, probably temperatures or I over brushed the craft table. Transferred everything that was in the wheelbarrow to the tool cart. N...

Re: stick steering for outboards

That type of steering is used quite a bit on "crappie" fishing boats. Crestliner makes one: http://www.crestliner.com/SS-Series-Fishing-Boats It allows the boat to be a very open design without a steering wheel getting in the way. The driver also does not have to move in order to pull up t...

Re: Homemade Tool Cart

That sounds like a simple and easy way to make a drawer! When you don't have enough drawers you realize how handy they are!

Re: Homemade Tool Cart

If it had a motor it would probably get more attention! Just wanted to post this in case anyone else needs one. It was super easy to build. I'm sure you can figure out what I did from the picture. If I had a router or table saw I probably would have made a channel for the plywood so sit in. Since I ...

Homemade Tool Cart

Hey everybody, here's a picture of my latest creation. It's a homemade tool cart that I built after seeing the prices of equivalent carts at places like Northern Tool and Harbor Freight. Cost me less than half of those and is at least as sturdy (probably much more so). I already had the plywood but ...

Re: Local guys too big for me

I'm going to keep looking locally. There have got to be more suppliers. I'm sure if I was buying 500-1000 board feet I could buy from just about anybody.

Re: Local guys too big for me

The guy that cuts my hair also makes cabinets. I'm due for a trim so I'll ask him. I sent a list of what I need to Capitol City Lumber in Raleigh but haven't heard back yet. They were on the Glen-l site. The one place I did get a quote from for the white oak also has AB ply with waterproof glue but ...

Local guys too big for me

Not a huge deal but two of the local lumber producers in my county won't deal in small quantities like 100 board feet. That's too bad it would have been very convenient to buy from them. I did find some qtr sawn S2S white oak one county over for $4.00 board foot however they only have 4/4 and I'm go...
