Re: Wood in MD

Posted by FrankP on Jul 19, 2004

Well, I went to Exotic Lumber in Gaithersburg on Friday and got some wood for making paddles. I ended up with Walnut, Purpleheart, Soft Maple, Basswood, and Mahoganey. Total cost $96. I should be able to get at least 3 paddles out of this wood, so I'm looking forward to experimenting with some layup designs. Thanks again to all those who helped me find the information for Exotic Lumber again. Hopefully get the wood ripped and start on some paddle blanks this week.


Growing old is inevitible, growing up is optional. Live well, play hard.
