So, I picked up this mystery wood from my usual guy, a retired older guy who mills what he has on his land, air dries it, as more of a hobby than anything. As such, he will mill what he finds down, and occasionally cut a tree or two down. He typically mills maple, ash, hemlock, hickory, and oak. Occasionally he will find some cherry. This stuff got pushed to the back of the barn, and air dried for at least 4 seasons, and it is of an unknown species. I picked up about 250 bd ft of it for $175. It was rough cut and just a hair above 4/4. Most of the boards are in the 7-10” wide range, and mostly clear.
(Disregard the one odd board in there 4th from the left, that is a 11” wide maple plank I needed for another task).
- This tree grew in upstate NY.
So, given that, what do you guys think it is? Whatever it is, it’s on its way to being my new kitchen cabinet frames/doors.
-- - The mightiest oak in the forest is just a little nut that held its ground.
