    Bars, church pews, and pianos. I always thought Deardorff used pattern-grade mahogany for it's dimensional stability.

    Dr. Tang,
    Over here church pews are generally made of English oak.

    "Kiln dried wood isn't seasoned wood."

    It certainly isn't. It is a process invented to reduce storage of timbers for the necessary number of years. The results are not suitable for fine joinery.

    Perhaps in the millionaires' area of town where you live! Down here they are usually made from pine.

    I bet the church pews around Osbourne House are made of oak or perhaps Prince Albert had something imported from Germany (Prussia)?

    When asking for supply sources it helps to know where you're located.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Kiln drying came in around the same time as balloon framing for houses. I always laugh to myself when someone says something like "the finest kiln dried lumber". Seasoning and forced drying are completely different processes.

    I applaud altruism. Here's my local place, in White Plains, NY: M. L. Condon Lumber. Highly recommended. I love to stop in and fondle their exotics. There's no mention, on their website, of shipping. Maybe I need to stop by soon and ask.
