Just a relatively straightforward question. I am a beginner woodworker and practise a lot on cheap cuts of softwood timber, however I am always on the lookout for some cheap hardwoods for sale so that I can buy, store it and work on it when I'm ready.
I have seen an ad for Spanish Chestnut, and I together with my friend wish to buy some planks of it.
Thing is that apparently it is rough finish so my question is, how do I get it to a state where it is workable, and do so cheaply?
I have no jointer or planer, just a sander! Is it possibly to be capable of transforming rough wood without investing in expensive machinery?
Here is a link to the timber that is for sale:
