When I had some land cleared in 2008 I kept all the large poplar and red oak and had it milled and stickered to air dry. Initially I was only thinking of flooring, but I had done some woodwork as a youth so it occurred to me it might be fun again. We built a place like a carriage house - with a 3-car garage on the bottom and an apartment above. Long story short, the garage is now a wood shop and the yard is littered with stacks of wood. I live near Indianapolis and have a second shop in my garage. It is well stocked with red oak, quarter-sawn red oak, and poplar.
