If customs will let it through (from Canada north of Maine right??), you know from our past chats that I’m still open to paying to ship some of this.
Thanks!!

I have 75 to 80 pieces that are 15’’ to 17” and 18’ long from 1.5” to 3” thick rough pieces.
The ones that I have flattened I will keep.
By checking my LJ Gallery you will see clocks that I have made with the same wood.

Great job saving that from the fire!!! WOW, it makes me wonder how many people don’t even pay attention and burn gems like these. I understand needing to heat the home, but there should be plenty of plain wood to torch. Once again, great job and THANKS!!

That may look cheap of me asking for shipping cost but if I send to 10 to 15 members well you now what I mean, already had quite a few request.
By the way if any who want some and have me blocked no mater tell me and I will sent it same as the others.

Nice pieces, amazing what you find in the wood pile.
I had just cut up a 16’ maple log into 18” pieces and find that one side of the whole lenght
was curly maple, did save a few though, but would have been nice with a couple of 1×8x16’ers

All of those were 10 to 15” round you only see it as you split it in two and most of the time it splits at an angle so I use a wedge to try to get the best of it but by now I have too much I wish I could turn.
