George, you made a pair of Kitchen Tongs, where do you purchase maple or cherry wood 1 1/8″ thick?

In my area, Wisconsin, it’s pretty easy for me to get hardwoods that are 5/4” (1-1/4”) and 8/4” (2”) thick from my hardwood supplier.
I did a Google search for “wood turning blanks” and there were lots of matches. Turning blanks will be thick so, if you can’t find a hardwood supplier in your area, you can order turning blanks to get thick stock.
