I have a friend who owns a sawmill/lumber business, and I stopped by to pick this stuff up from him (yesterday) with absolutely nothing in mind. Only possibilities of what could possibly be one day.
But you might have a part in what I build with some of it. If you have any good suggestions for me.
I’ve got a while before I’m recovered from my hand injury (see my other blog entry), so since I won’t be using the machines anytime REAL soon, I need to occupy my mind with ideas for when that day comes when I get back into the shop.
First up – 6 pieces of Black Walnut (with plenty of sapwood) $8 for all 6 pcs. Varying widths of 5.5” (4), 7.75” (1), & finally 8.25” (1)
Next – 12 pcs of 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” x @ 28” (2) – 30” (10) each. Most likely legs for something. $5 for all 12 pcs.
& finally – A stick of Hickory that he threw in, when I asked if he had any, cheap. $2 for the piece.
Who knows, your ideas could be what I build as my comeback project, hahaha.
Thanks for looking,
P/S/ – I’ve got lots more wood to get ideas on in upcoming blog posts.
