This web site Talarico Hardwoods was on an e-mail that I got today. It’s a sawmill in Pennsylvania.

Enjoy and drool.

That is the kind of “porn” that I would love to get into. Thanks for the post. The crotch pictures are fabulous.

That wood should be the centerfold in Fine Woodworking.

Nice. Hmmmm, that’s only two hours away.
But I would not know where to start with such nice wood.

Hi Karson;

Wood Porn?

I thought this was a family oriented site. LOL

I’m sticking with Hearnes!

They’re in my neck of the woods. I went there this past summer and drooled for an hour. Left with just an armful of beautiful birdseye maple veneer that I haven’t yet decided what to do with.

Lee: It’s strange have two high grade sawmills so close together. Hearnes and this one. By the way when are you going to invite me to go to Hearnes with you.

I checked out the sight, and it is amazing. I’ll have to admit, that I have been sheltered from the wood. Taking a visual tour of that place was inspiring. From that, and from checking out some of the projects on LJ, I realize that I have so much to learn. I am excited though. I’ve been talkin to my wife about LJ every since I joined. I would introduce her to wood porn, nahh ….. better not go there.

OH MAN KARSON…................... if woodworking wasn’t expensive enough… you throw in Wood Porn…........... Beautiful stuff, just wish I could afford some of it myself. Just think of all the beautiful things a guy could build from that. Fantastic sight. I did add it to my favorites list.

Well, I didn’t think I was THAT sort of girl, but I guess I am. Please don’t tell my mother. (My husband has already seen that side of me.) And please pass the cloth napkins, I’m getting a wet chin.

BTW: I’ve found a source for re-claimed mahogany, from 18 ft. of water in Floriday. The logs were cut about 100 years ago. If interested, drop me a line. I will try and see if they have a website available.
