It finally happened to me. My Cousin, who lives in Mississippi, called and asked if I could use some wood – Can I ever :-)!!!!! I met him in Franklinton, LA (about half way to his house) and he had the back end of his pickup loaded! He had cut 3 1×12x10’ boards of Walnut (beautiful stuff) in half. His Dad purchased this wood from a local mill about 30 years ago and had it stored in his shed all that time. I ws afraid that it would be cupped, checked and mostly unusable – but it was flat relatively unchecked and beautiful! He also had 2 boards of Pecan, 2 boards of Red Oak, 2 boards of Red Cedar all measuring 1×10x5”and several large chucks of Walnut. Can I tell you how happy I am!!!!

It couldn’t of happened to a better guy. Just think of the fun you will have thinking of what to do with it. And you know it’s dry.

Great score!

You do realize that you are now obligated to make him a nice “thank you” gift from some of this wood?
