Topic tags/keywords: resource pine maple cherry walnut oak ash

Hello fellow LJ’s, I am helping a friend of 81 years liquidate his inventory of lumber. He has mostly Heart Pine but I have found walnut, cherry and other species in it. This lumber is reclaimed and varies in condition. There are post, planks of varying width, beaded board and moldings. He has some mantles as well. He also has unused locally harvested lumber in Pecan and other species. We are located in West Alabama and will sell a single board or a truck load. Price is negotiable. Please send me a message if you are interested. We need to sell this lumber. I have included a few photos of what is available.

wow roz, he got a very big and good looking supply, if i was in business and making the rustic furniture i had planned on making, i would certainly buy him out, but i do have a fair supply myself and just dont have room for any more myself, but i will keep my eyes open for someone who might want some of this…good luck…its great looking wood..

also rozz, i know that this heart pine is very valuable wood and he certainly deserves some good prices for it, its a timber that does not grow anymore and this wood is just beautiful when its planned and coated…ive made a few pieces of furniture with this wood and its something you just cant buy at some lumber yard…maybe you should plane a piece and wet it , so folks who dont know what antique heart pine looks like…

I’m very interested in talking with you about the lumber. Sent 2 pm’s but not sure if you got them. Is there some other way I can reach you?
