So after lots of sanding and a drop of Danish oil, this is what I've got. Basic due to limited amount of wood working tools and skill.

Can anyone tell me where I might find a live edge slab for a table project I want to start for the darker/more miserable months!! Small bit of experience in woodwork but wouldn't have a clue about buying for a project like this

Looking for oak/maple/something with a bit of character. I want to try my hand at a river table so would need a nice edge. Dimensions would probably be 1200mm X 700mm.

Would appreciate if anyone can give me a rough idea about what I'd pay for the above of any advice on the project itself

No idea where to find a nice board at the moment I am afraid, but plenty of inspiration on Instructables for that type of project.

Melamine veneered chip/mdf/ply

Hi all,

I'm looking for suppliers in the east coast - preferably Wicklow - that sell melamine veneered chip/mdf/ply directly to the public (i.e. they'll sell to non-trade) and even better if they do half sheets - any ideas?

Thanks!

Lokking for advice on
* Cost effective options for getting larger pieces of timber.
* transporting timber.
Try the builder's suppliers, there's a few around Galway, there's one in Moneenageisha and one in Ballybrit off the top of my head. They usually have timber in dimensions you dont get from woodies and B&Q. Not sure if they're the same crowd running it anymore but I built a bench and a bed a few years ago and got the bigger pieces from the place in Moneenageisha, they also arranged for delivery for a fee.

Hi there!

I'm doing construction studies for my leaving cert.
I was wonder if the anybody in Leinster (preferably in or around Arklow) had any nice wood I could buy? I would be willing to pay up to €50 and/or trade some wood I have out in the shed that wasn't suitable for the project.

Here's the sort of thing I'm looking for:

@timfromtang remove the spaces and change the dot to a real dot. (apparently I can’t post proper links).
