I am going to be a few days in NY and I would like to know if you can recommend me some place where I can buy good materials like woods, veneers or something cool :relaxed:

You really are a world traveler :yum:

No ideas for you as I live in So Cal :wink:

Safe travels :smiley:

Something cool? Canal Plastics.

sure, where in NY? There’s an awesome wood place, but it’s not in the best hood in the Bronx…

Another vote for Canal Plastics – you may not want to get anything there, but it will give you a lot of ideas.

That’s the coolest part of my job, I’m so lucky :four_leaf_clover:

Sorry, I’m in Long Island (arrived this morning), but I can go to another area if it’s worth it.

Don’t worry, I live in the suburbs too (Not like Bronx but I can deal with it). I’ll be careful.

Thank you guys, gonna take a look at your suggestions :smiley:

I can confirm that Rosenzweig is really great. They have racks and racks of incredible wood in all sizes.

Be aware, though, that their hours are very limited (no weekends, no evenings), so plan accordingly if you want to go.

Have fun.

I live on Long Island. There’s nothing of value there. :grinning:


#9

Except some of the best fishing and hunting (especially waterfowl) in the US…


#10

Aren’t Brooklyn and Queens both technically on Long Island? As well as JFK and LaGuardia?


#11

Unfortunately I could not go to see the store, there is some snow on the road

Thank you guys, maybe next time :relaxed:


#12

Ah, so you were right in my neighborhood.


#13

Really? I went to HD that day… just for fun, I love snow and where I live is almost impossible to see a snow storm like that.


#14

Yeah, I recognize that road well, I only live 3 miles from there. Maybe next time I’ll have my glowforge and you can come over and laser things.


#15

Sure I will :wink:


#16

Isn’t that Road on the Snow?


#17

:joy: maybe, in fact in some places there was no road at all, or sidewalk. But it was fun to be in such a white (and strangely not so cold) place.


#18

I know how you feel. It’s just about the only thing I don’t like about being in the San Antonio area. Occasionally we’ll get to see snow in Oklahoma over Christmas at least.
