I just picked up some more walnut that’s been air dried in a barn loft for over 20 years. A fella picked it up as part of an estate sale. 2500 bd ft of it. He has 4/4, 5/4, 6/4 and 8/4 and nothing higher than $4.50 a bd ft.
He actually prices the 5, 6 and 8 quarter all the same at $4.50. AND he deducts for knots, checks, etc. Pretty cool guy. I guess the fact that his deal with the estate was “I get any wood found in the barn loft for $900 total for anything in the loft.” worked out. The 1500 bd ft of old Honduran mahogany has already more than paid back his $900 investment.

It’s in Western NY state though, so probably a bit too far to drive. :)
