Midweek Maple 110



Direct link - https://youtu.be/79TJFf2Dv7k


Hi everyone! Just a quick midweek catchup for you - not a huge amount to share as I haven't really been in this week yet, due to slaving away at the coalface of online store changes, but thought I'd share what I had.


Catch you at the weekend.


Peter


p.s. prices quoted in the vid includes my discount...


Edited to add: I popped into the yard to settle up this afternoon, and they told me that 18mm Birch ply simply isn't available; they're OK for 15mm & 22mm, but not 18mm - and the last they had was £170/sheet + VAT; so in that context, you can see why the Maple's priced as it is. 🤷‍♂️

Macallister's best, but not up to drilling 25mm Holes in 4x3 Timber with an Auger bit 🤣

Holy C*** £180, I hope that was for a Full Sheet and not just the length you showed us on the floor. Having just found a great if not very muddy wood yard near me, I've just paid £100 for four 2.4M lengths of 25mm solid Beech about 10" wide and it is great quality. By my reckoning that's not much more than a full sheet of 18mm Birch Throughout Ply 😁, just edge gluing it together could get a bit tedious 🤣.

Cheers Colin. Yes, that’s a full sheet - I just get them ripped in half to make them easier to handle! Beech sounds like a bargain! 👍

regarding birchply alternatives...last time I visited my wood supplier, he said he will get birchply with an eucalyptus wood core...should be cheaper than birch...I think, I'll give it a try as soon as he receives the delivery.

Thanks! Be interested to hear how it is. I know a couple of guys who have had flatness issues with eucalyptus ply. 🤷‍♂️👍

Do you think you have enough dominoes?

I saw Jimmy Diresta make a truss bridge out of matchsticks, thought I’d one-up him and make one out of Dominos! 😂 Nah, these are the smallest quantities of the larger dominos that I was able to buy Gary - I could have bought a whole sheet of Maple ply for what they cost - and I need them to test out the next loose tenon jig XL. 👍

Yep, 20% VAT - it’s higher in some other countries too! 🤷‍♂️
