I just got my load of hardwood unloaded the other night. It’s mostly walnut and cherry, with a few boards of hickory, osage orange (hedge) and a couple of live edge cedar. All of it is at least 12-15 years old, and was air dried, if I understand correctly. This is good, as I think it’ll steam bend more easily, which I like doing. Although I’ve had fine luck steam bending kiln dried lumber too. I’m figuring after 12-15 years, there shouldn’t be any more splitting/shrinkage…It was stored up in the rafters of some old barns. And here’s the best part: I got if all for $1.50 / BF :-) !!!
I got about 200 BF. It’s mostly all 4/4 with a little 5/4 and 6/4. I know my photos are pretty crappy, but you get the idea hopefully.

I’ve got so many ideas of projects to build with it, but just need some time to get to it now. If you look in my favorites, that’s a pretty comprehensive sampling of my “to-build” list!
