I was over at my dad’s house this morning doing some tile work when I got a notification on my phone from the “lumber” notification I have set up on Craigslist. Someone in my dad’s town was looking to get rid of some walnut slabs—he hadn’t measured them nor knew how much they went for. I decided to stop by and take a look:
Turns out they were both about 14/4 rough sawn walnut, 13-14” wide, and one was 4’ long- the other 5’.
The kicker: $40.
I’m thinking of making something small/nice for the guy and dropping it off at his house some time. He inherited a lot of walnut and hemlock from his dad’s estate after his dad passed away last year. In other news, he said he would keep me informed if anything else popped up.
Thanks for the look. Any ideas what to make this guy?
