Last spring I helped clean out the loft in an old barn on my Grandparents farm. the barn is getting old and starting to sag. My Grandpa had a huge stash of lumber up in the loft that he milled himself about 50 years ago when he used to have his own portable saw mill. (Sadly it burned in a forest fire) Most of the lumber was no good anymore and went to the burn pit, but I salvaged a fair pile
My Grandpa had no use for the wood anymore and let me take it. I finally got it back to my place this week. I had to stored it in another building on the farm and had to wait for my parents to make a trip to the city with a trailer as many of the board are 14 feet long and I didn’t want to cut any of them down before deciding what to build with them.
The wood is a mix of Pine and Birch. with several birch slabs (live edge, with bark) that are 2 inch thick by 8+ inch wide and close to 12 feet long.
Not the best pic, All the big stuff is on the bottom of the pile out of site
Haven’t decided what I should be building out of the pile yet, but a few ideas are
some sort of live edge coffee\hall table
a chest of some kind
Of course before I can start anything I need to finish the Puzzle table project I started for my wife almost a year ago, that is 80% finished
