This is the first time I’ve purchase wood online, and the first time I bought anything but pine. I wanted to make simple window shelves on brackets for my cats to sit on. I realized I didn’t want to look at big box store pine shelving every day (I’m laying knotty pine floors – I didn’t want more pine) so I looked on ebay and bought these. Excuse the crappy looking living room floor, I haven’t even put down the new subfloor in this room yet.
The walnut boards (two) are live edge, approx. 71” x 22” x 3/4”. Don’t know what I’ll do yet, leaning towards simple benches with store bought screw in legs until later, when I have the skills to do something nice with them.
Until I’m ready to work on them, I rewrapped them and layed cinder blocks on them to keep them flat. Is this ok?
I know there are a lot of pics of the same thing, but I’m mezmerized by the pattern in the wood. I don’t know if I’ve ever even seen walnut before…very excited!!
