I just scored two 10’ 8×6 timbers from the shoring used to ship this Mercedes Benz on a aircraft, now what to do with them.

Origin Germany? Some type of pine I think, it is very heavy.

My first suggestion is to stay friendly with the MB dealer. Got to be more of these coming.

This one had a lot of test equipment inside, PC hookups and what not, it cost them 7300 euros to fly it from Stuttgart to Detroit, just the freight. It did have heated cup holders for that cold morning commute.

This it what I normally see being flown in. I’m looking for the Aston Martin.
I think that I may have those boards.

A workbench!
You will get a wonderful split top workbench out of these.
