I replied to a craigslist add for a few free oak boards for fire wood, only to find over 4000 board feet of spalted maple-I was able to save approx. 2000 board feet from the other “fire wood grabbers”. As I primarily work with reclaimed/recycled lumber I hit the jackpot.
The table I built for my sister-in-laws daycare, 64”long x20”wide x17” high.

Too bad you didn’t buy a lottery ticket the same day! Wait, it wouldn’t have won, you used up all your luck on the wood.

I can’t believe it was firewood! What a waste of good wood! Nice table.
