    If you're looking for small, check with Hobby Lobby or other craft stores. I'm sure I've seen 8x10 sheets of plastic mirror material at someplace like that.

    Deflation would be a worse sign for the economy. Inflation is how a free market system corrects for supply/demand imbalance. I'd be looking hard for used equipment before I paid some of these prices.

    I believe Hearne Hardwoods in Chester County has olive wood. I've been getting some from Cook Woods in Washington. Not cheap but very cool looking. I love turning it and it has a great hand feel.
