    Small wood gloat

    Picked up some air dried (12 yrs) walnut today from an older gentleman cleaning out his workshop.

    The 3 larger boards are 10/4 x. 8' x 13". The smaller board is 6 1/2' x 10/4 x 10". Roughly 75 bf.

    He wanted $2.25 / bf which I readily agreed to. My regular sawmill prices wide 8/4 @ $8/bf. So, that feels like a pretty good deal that I couldn't pass up.

    Give it a really close inspection to make sure no powder post beetles in the sapwood!

    Yep, did that. Would not have brought it home if I saw any evidence of bugs.
