I’m curious what kind of woods people are using for various projects, and where you order from. I’ve seen some boxes and trinkets designed and laser cut on youtube, but they mostly use MDF. MDF is a great all-purpose product but not very attractive for most finished products. OTOH, it’s hard to find nicer woods cut down to less than 1/2 inch thickness but in a large enough sheet to do anything substantial with. Seems like it would get expensive quickly.
I just went down the road to a local sawmill that produces cedar and cypress for building materials, and the thinnest product they can produce is a 1/2 inch thick but only 5.5 inches wide. I’m looking into a source for bamboo plywood now but curious what other routes people are taking.
