At my age.........seems fitting!
Yeah, laying the wood in garage has a feel of accomplishment..........
...but I'm only 40% done finishing KA material. More wood to sand, condition, stain, sand and shoot lacquer.
Funny , 15-20 years ago we used to chip saw Alder logs or cut it up for firewood......wasn't worth time/effort in small quantities. Now, per thousand BF, Alder has a much higher price than Douglas Fir!
Alder used to be considered a "poor man's" Cherry ......not anymore. Price of Alder is getting up there. I'm fortunate to have received exceptional pricing for this wood .....as I mention before, I'm only going to be into this soffit/ceiling project for just over/under a grand. Back East, I'd expect you'd pay double/triple or more for this material!
