Thread: Air dried Hickory for sale

  1. #1

    Air dried Hickory for sale

    I have about 210 bdft 10-12+ foot lengths of air dried, rough cut shag bark hickory that I'm willing to sell. Board widths vary from 4" to 10-3/4", with the majority being 5 to 6-1/2" widths. I doubt I will be making any more hickory furniture. This hickory has been stacked and stickered for over 30 years in an unheated building and based on what I've recently used from the stack it is all pretty nice stuff. Very little sap wood, virtually no knots and cabinet grade. I am asking at $1.00 per bdft. I would like to sell it all at once. No deliveries.

    John, worth the trip to visit Lee and scarf some of that nice material. Make an outing of it!

    It is all rough cut at 1-1/16 to 1-1/8" rough sawed. For what I was doing I have it taken down to 3/4".

    Thank goodness it is not 8/4 or thicker. If it was I would be looking at 4 1/2 hr trip which I don't want too do.

    I don't think I could pick up a 10 foot long 8/4 x 6" hickory board.

    Soooooooo sweet!

    I wish you had 8/4 hickory for sale...

    About a year ago a exterior passage door came through our then finishers shop. It was made of wormy reclaimed hickory. It’s was wicked nice!

    Really? Will no one step up and save me from this temptation?

    Lee, I am seriously interested. In part because I don't believe there is quite enough in my basement shop for heirs to have to clear out.

    Would you mind posting a picture so I can get a better idea what I would be getting into?

    Well shoot, man. You guys are practically neighbors. Hitch up the wagon and get yer giddyup goin' long about sunrise.

    And I hear ya about the basement shop. My heirs will be rememberin' me for months after I'm gone. If they are able to identify a Veritas tool from a Stanley, they'll be happy.

    Sorry 'bout the dialect- been binge watching Gunsmoke.

    In the interest of full disclosure, this wood is hard. The mill that surfaced what I am using had a difficult time getting good surfaces. I feel that part of the problem was that they didn't pay attention to the first pass or two through their planer to see if the grain was lifting so they could turn the board end for end before continuing. I have a couple pieces that are basically firewood because of the tear out. They milled about 150 bdft for me.
