Im going to give this one more shot before i throw it up on Craigslist.

Ive got about 50 pieces of reclaimed, 100 year old lumber, salvaged from a demo job that im willing to give away to any Lumberjock interested in picking it up. Its mostly wide plank pine, with some very straight grained material in the center of the boards.

My way of giving back to all of you that have helped me along my journey into woodworking.

Just a small sample of the boards.

Is that at 65MP or 85MPH? ;)

Hmmmm …. I used some reclaimed from two sources for my shed and enjoyed it. I like the old stuff and while I have no specific ideas yet as to future needs, I keep coming back to wanting to stock up for when we finally figure out what we want to do in our antique home.

My inlaws live in South Hadley, MA. Is that any closer? We’re going out there at the end of January. Maybe I could “swing” down from there if it makes sense.

Do you think the wood is worth it? How long are most of them? How long are the longest? Good shape? What was it from?

Thank you.

From South Hadley its about an hour and 10 minutes… give or take. They are all at least 6’ long most being between 6’ and 10’. 10’ the longest. For the most part they are in very good shap with the exception of some nail holes and some left over nails that never got pulled. It all came from a 1880’s house just over the river from me where it served as subfloor and sheathing. Take a look into my projects, they have all been done with this reclaimed wood.

Is it worth the drive …. thats all up to you. Id say there is about 500 – 600 square feet total.

Chrisstef,
If you still have this wood I would be interested in some. How far are you from NY or Danbury for reference.
