I am still going though it all but most of it was 4/4 and some 8/4 every thing from 4” -12” wide up to 40” long all s4s already. So far I saw 20 pieces of 8/4 oak about 40” long 470 pieces of 1×2x 40 maple/ curley maple (perfect for doing guitar necks which i would of been laminating anyway)

Seems like a great haul, especially for the curly maple and cherry!

Well your 4 hour and $85 investment should keep you off the street corner and out of trouble for a good long while. ;-)

Nice Gloat, You suck. :-)

I live in southern Indiana and it is the local Auction house. They get it from Kohletter (sp) woodworks. Which is in the same town. it’s all stuff to small for them

Nice find. Thanks for sharing. I dream about that. Wood is outrageous around here.
Be careful about storage. Black widows would like that. I kill several every year in my shop. Got nailed by one once. Night in the hospital. Bad.

That’s almost enough wood for four hours.

My throat is twitching with indecision between cheering your gloat or spouting fiery expletives of jealousy…I think I’ll cheer your gloat.
