Nick,
A source for a surprising supply of hardwoods to use in your shop is old pallets. Although many companies re-use them, once broken they are tossed. I used to source a lot of 1" thick oak planks for furniture projects as a young man. Some beautiful stuff under the rough surfaces. One other thing. Please think about making some kind of a guard for the belt and pulley. Old bicycle chain guard? Something to keep your hands and clothing out of the machinery, no matter how humble. Good luck.
