Nothing like going on vacation and coming back with a truckload of free wood! Well, almost free. Before you all ask, I’ll just say I can’t give up my secret source because it’s the gift that keeps on giving, haha. I have a ton of projects in store and as a result, I did end up purchasing some FAS 4/4 Qtr. Sapele to match some of the wood that I got. I wish I could have kept it at the 14 foot lengths, but the logistics of transferring those on a 6 foot bed, 1000 miles didn’t make sense. Nonetheless, this is an amazing haul; well worth the extra half tank of gas in the truck! Now I just have to figure out how to mill some of this stuff!
Which I had taken a better picture of the truck with the wood stacked in it. With the wood stored, really can’t get a good angle of all the wood. There is another section that I didn’t take a picture of of all hard maple shorts, perfect for dovetail drawers and other stuff.
I plan on making some fine furniture with this stuff! Can’t wait to show you all what I have planned.
