I bought some wood today. Going to start work on some tables for display. This is alder, 30 board feet of it. A medium hard wood, about the same as walnut, although much lighter. Alder takes dyes very well so I can make this look like anything. I also like the way it sands as it can take a very smooth finish.
This load will make about 4 to 5 tables. Will be working on these over the next few weeks.
