« Part 2: Bastogne Walnut Part 3 of Wood Gloat series no next part

I text a friend today to see if he still had the “rattlesnake crotch” WO board that I saw about a month ago. He said yes and that he’d sell me the 50 BF batch for $80 (he is moving states in the months ahead). I calculated (roughly, underestimating) 53 BF. I needed this score, I have a decent amount of wood, but not much of one species.

I am really excited about the “rattlesnake” board (I will build a project around this very twisted board), although I have a decent amount of voids to fill I use JB Weld wood restorer with very good results (it doesn’t heat up, very penetrating, although expensive). Now what to do with it all….

Good one! I brought home 350 b.f. of quarter sawn white oak on Saturday for $125. I am a pretty happy boy.

I think you both suck!

All I ever find is overpriced junk on CL.

Good for you guys – but that’s never been my luck.
