Well, almost free. Here’s what I got from a buddy’s dad this weekend while back in Arkansas. Seven cedar logs anywhere from 10 to 16 feet long and 6 to 14 inches in diameter. I also have a couple smaller five foot sections not shown in the picture. All for the price of two cases of Coca-Cola. Not bad. Did I mention I got a 10” Craftsman Radial Arm Saw as well? Yeah, that too. Pretty good deal in my book.
This is my first “wood gloat” so to speak, I’m pretty excited, now I just have to figure what in the world I’m going to do with it. I don’t have any way to mill it right now, but I’ll figure something out, it’s not like it’s going to go bad. I may make some rustic benches or something out it. If I get it milled up, I may try a small cedar chest for my buddy’s parents, maybe a humidor for myself, the possibilities are endless…
It was one heck of trip getting back to the Mojave desert. The guys at the California agricultural check station had fun. Five officers with flashlights crawling all over the trailer, but 20 minutes later they said I could go.
Thanks for looking!
