I'm looking to purchase a beam and knife and possibly a beam stand. Could anyone reccommend where to purchase these?

Thanks,
Dave

Make your own beam. My favorite wood was always yellow popular. It has a "feel" and tooth that seemed to make the chore a bit easier. Yellow Popular wood is almost as resilient to moisture as cypress, but with a tougher grain. A lot of lumber yards stock the wood. Just carve down one end to a blunt taper, round off the edges, and nail it to your kitchen counter....or something.
