« Part 3: This one is for you Karson Part 4 of Wood Gloat series Part 5: This time Camphor Laurel ! »

I finally got the other rack [I bought 2 and put one inside.] into the wood storage area… Went down to my mate Pat’s Demolition yard and picked up 3 of the 5 pallets of European Wild Cherry that I had stored there. [These boards are of various length and width and thickness… mainly 2’ long. 1 to 2’’ thick and up to 4’’ wide.] The other 2 are coming tomorrow.
Even though we had them wrapped they were stored outside and they are slightly damp.. oh well the first 4 pallets made it into the wood storage area unscathed. yep 9 all up. We got most of the cherry pieces into the racks. Hopefully will get the rest into storage tomorrow morning,







This last pic is of a few pieces dressed.

Thats a huge amount of cutting boards waiting to be born! The only timber that I can gloat about is Rimu, as no one else will have it. other than that, most of the things you can get her for reasonable price are Radiata pine and DF….
I checked the other day for the price of PH. ~60 NZD per lm (150/50) thats about 40 USD!!! (no, I am not going to convert it to bf)

Moshel,.. PH here for me is 20 bucks AU for 150 by 50 per metre.. as to BF.. 20 nz$ 13.50 us$ and 16 au$ ... that is your price. My price for a board foot it 6.70 au$. I hope you don’t mind me being the ratbag this time.
Pommy shipping is too costly otherwise you would be welcome to some of my timbers \.
Hooky I am addicted to tools also,
David How is the rose wood Deni sent.?

BTW the Wild Cherry [european not american] cost me AU$ 0.37 per board foot, actually worth around AU$ 15.00 per board foot. I also have two pallets of French Walnut.

Larry, the sight of all that wood is enough to bring tears to most of our eyes. At this rate you are going to breeze by Karson in the wood collection contest!!

Now that is an amazing collection of wood! You better get busy making stuff so you’ll have room for the french walnut!!!!! Between your wood stash, the wee beastie and the fact you have your own series on DVD for and about the Wee Beastie I can’t help but become green with envy. You are also my Idol.

I am speechless with envy, I would give my left n— for some of that lumber.
you must live in an area that has a mild climate, what with the open sides on your shed.
