So as a demolition contractor (the job that pays the mortgage) and a wood working hobbyist (the job that keeps me sane) i have been privliged enough to get my hands on some great lumber. My most recent score is some antique red / black oak dating back to the late 1800’s from what i could gather. I took home my first piece to be denailed, a monster 5/4×18” x 32”. Unfortunately it had quite a crook down the middle and i had to sacrifice it and rip the crook out of it leaving me with 2 8” wide pieces. Havent figured out what i want to do with the lumber yet but ill be posting pics of the process, hopefully ill have it all planed down and square by the end of the weekend here. Pics coming soon.
