Almost a year ago I went to an estate auction where they were selling off loads of wood on the ground. I had my dad’s truck and since no one was bidding on them, I left with 5 loads of wood for $1 each. I even made my money back by selling a 1”x1”x48” piece of curly maple for $10. The 5 loads went over the bedrails of the truck and some pieces of butternut extended another 10’ past the back.
I was out in my barn tonight taking some pictures of some saws I have (also from the same auction) and was looking for some extra walnut I might have laying around. I stumbled upon these—one 33.5”x6.5” and one 31”x6.5”—pieces of mahogany (Please correct me if I’m wrong). I used my cell phone, so the picture quality isn’t that great.
Also in the same truckload of wood, I got an 18’ long butternut board and some cherry slabs- one of which is 16”x48”, with one live edge.
Just for curiosity’s sake, how much would that mahogany go for?
