Well, that just totally sickens me. Wish I had some of that.

That stash of lumber looks like it would have cost me my entire retirement account lol. Very nice wood gloat.

Now I know how Gandalf (in the Lord Of The Rings) felt when he could see the gold ring but not possess it… That’s some beautiful wood you’ve got there.

I’d like to visit Cropp also. It’s a long drive (I guess about 4 hours)
Amazing wood!!!

Maybe 5 hours driving for me but it could be a nice little weekend trip to Hamburg as well. And a couple of beer cases on the way back… The Euro is low now compared to the Swedish Krona. Thank for the link to Cropp.

Well, it was a 7 hour drive for me and worth every minute of it; great wood and great prices. More pics from previous trips to Cropp Timber.
