5-S lumber

A truckload of lumber, courtesy of a generous 5-S program where I work. This load was $10!! And even if I cull the few badly checked timbers, and 2X4s, there’s gotta be at least a hundred board feet of cherry, oak and poplar, mostly 3X4s by 60”long, and twenty hand-picked red beech 2×2s,(one on the tailgate) approx 32 inches long, and awesome for turning! And to think this was just dunnage for incoming freight.

Fantastic! Lots of good turning stock there.

Looking forward to seeing the projects.
