Well after going through a craigslist free listing I found a listing that seemed strange maybe not real but I went anyways. The listing said a millwork shop was giving away pretty much everything but the tools darn. What I got was this a large quantity of 8/4 African Mahogany, 8/4 Black Walnut some bloodwood and lyptus I know the pieces are not long but they are 8/4 stock for the hard maple and there is about 3 bd ft in each one, 20 ft of crown molding and some other items. Anyways I got enough to do some more bandsaw boxes and some other things. Did I mention sopme butcher block cutoffs that I think I can turn into end grain boards?
The first picture is all African Mahogany in 2 in squares about 2 ft long the others show the maple and mahogany and walnut. This was a good deal for me as the woods were a good deal especially the price just a little work and it was all mine

I think the pieces are too small and you should send them to me…LOL. Truly an excellent score….goes to show that keeping an eye out for such opportunities can pay off. Congrats on a wonderful gloat.

I think you paid too much. You should bring them back. No, on second thought send them to me!

Congratulations on such a good find! I can’t wait to see what you do with them. Such fun!

I agree with Sheila, but I’m closer. Send them to me.
Seriously though, free is always a good price on anything. Ihave driven all the way to Jackson (30+ miles one way) for less than what you have here. Congratulations.
