You handled it like a country gentleman. Get yourself a metal wand in the future?

I’ve got one Tom but it only goes so deep, I don’t know why mills don’t wand just after each cut.

I would not complain about the price as I just picked up eight 1×4x42 “S2S walnut and paid $67.00 +tax
This should turn into some nice tables and such .
BTW how many board feet are we looking at ?

Kiefer I don’t know the method used in calculating board feet so I honestly don’t know.

Randy,

Board feet is 1 inch thick 4/4 By 12 inches. If the material is more say 8/4’s then that would be x2.

Randy-
Did you take it to M&G in Huntsville ?
Or did you have some one in Austin mill the lumber?

Looks like you have a nice little stash there.

Since Koa has gotten to be so scarce, my absolute favorite is mesquite.

And my favorite woodworking trip is to the Mesquite festival in Fredricksburg, in October.

Cant wait to see some projects from that wood.

Thanks for sharing.

Big Kahuna I found a mill in Red Rock ran be a fellow named Gene Hahn his place is located around Highway 20 and 535 area, there’s a couple out that way another located in Cedar Creek ran by a fellow Brandon Berdoll, but I had a brush with his customer service that I didn’t like, Gene was very nice and great customer service, I’d recommend him to anyone.

Looks like you got some good wood out of that old tree, thanks for keeping us updated with the regular status reports. I know I learned a lot – most important being to get the details in writing at the start.

Can’t wait to see what you make with all this. Good Luck!
