Projects seem to be coming at the same time so they're overlapping now.

Since we're rebuilding some parts of our house, the guest bathroom needs a new vanity. The top will be waterproofed wood.

Proceeded milling the planks, cutting biscuit slots, then glueing.

My old stash of Ash. A few planks still. But Filtra has run out. Hopefully, some more will arrive next week.

Oo nga,Sonny. Sabay sabay pa so, when waiting for glue or stain to dry on one, I work on another.

We're rebuilding some kitchen cabinets so needed some wood. Went to Filtra and brought SWMBO with me. She instantly fell in love with some American Teak and asked if we could buy some and use it instead of ash for the Vanity.

Normally, SWMBO restricts me from buying wood. This is the first time she asked me to buy some! So who am I to refuse. Will be doing some milling again this weekend.

Nope. IIRC, it's just P350/bdft. And I paid an extra P30/bdft for it to be S4S. I got three pieces 2"x8"x8' and they're straight and nearly full-size. Expensive but well-worth it.
