This Friday and Saturday, Midwest Woodworking will be holding what is likely its last wood sale – plus veneers and most of the machinery on the shop floor.
The sale is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days. Midwest is located at 4019 Montgomery Road in Cincinnati, Ohio. Here’s a Google Map.
Both Andy Brownell and I have spilled so many ones and zeros on Midwest, I hope I don’t have to repeat myself. It will be worth the drive. Yes, the wood is well-priced. But what is more important is that it is primo. Much of it is decades old, dry, stable and mild. And it has been stored flat.
Stuff from modern lumberyards (at least the ones around here) just does not compare.

I’ll be there both days, sweating my hairy parts off in preparation for a 2 p.m. beer at Gordo’s across the street.
