The bottom two layers on this pile are White Oak. The next two thick layers (Labeled with green paint as HY) are the Hickory. The next layer that is falling apart is White Pine. The darker wood on top is Walnut.

All of the wood is currently labeled with tags just like in the above photo. I’ve taken pictures of all the tags as the wood is being moved to my shop on a open bed truck so I don’t know if the tags will survive the journey.

Most of the wood is 4/4 FAS. According to my guide on wood from the American Hardwood Export Council, “The FAS grade, which derives from an original grade “First And Seconds”, will provide the user with long, clear cuttings – best suited for high quality furniture, interior joinery and solid wood mouldings.” So this wood is all the highest grade wood. In fact it was all destined to be cut up and turned into moulding before the company went out of business.
