This is the day i’ve been waiting for , about three months ago i felled a black walnut and a red cedar tree, it took my sawyer a bit longer to get to it , but he did, and i’ve got a stash of walnut that will last me into the millenium, not exactly sure of how many board feet is there, but i would estimate around 400..as i looked into the currant lumber mills for 6/4 walnut they priced it at 12.00 a BF..this is some gorgeous wood… im smiling all the way to the bank, as i paid 100.00 for this load…:)

thanks a bunch for sharing in my happiness, this is a wonderful happy day, The Lord has smiled upon me today, and he has all the days of my life…have a great day fellow jocks.

Congratulations Grizzman. Not much walnut here in Arizona, anyway where I live. Enjoy the future items that you can make with it.

And I was gloating to myself for these 5 logs I got a couple day ago from a downed tree.

Yours are already cut and stickered. Glad to see it go to someone who will use it wisely.

Have you any idea the going price of some of that live edge walnut once it’s dry? I’d get a lock for that door!

Nice haul….

That’s nasty stuff. I’ll take it off your hands so you don’t have to use it.

Lucky for you I don’t live nearby, or I’d be on your doorstep begging.

Way to go Grizz! That should keep you smiling for quite a while. It’s the waiting for it to dry that will be tough!

I have a buddy that works for the road supervisor. When they cut something interesting I get first shot at the free logs. Here is a load of cedar and walnut.
