A few months ago I bought some hardwood from a local gentleman who had an ad on Craigslist. By the way, his 2-car garage is chocked full of all kinds of different hardwood as well as his entire basement.. only narrow passageways to walk through it all. Anyway, today I went back to see him as I was looking for some dark colored hardwood as well as some other types of wood. I ended up filling the trunk of my Chevrolet Impala full of Black Walnut, Brazilian Cherry, Poplar, and some hardwood Maple. I want to make some ‘checkerboard’ laminated projects, and he had lots of shorter stock just perfect for my needs. I just wanted a couple of boxes of wood, but I got a little carried away with what I saw, so I ended up filling the trunk of my car. When I asked him how much I owed him he looked at the load for a few seconds and said “60 dollars”. I’m sure that I got about 300 pounds of wood, and came home a happy camper.
