I have purchased from him. He is a great guy and will work with you. Has a very large collection of walnut. All air dried.

Thanks John. I saw a second ad from him advertising a saw mill service. Sounds like a phone number to hang on to.

I need some from the bottom of the pile. Just a board or two.

I want to say very bad quality so I can have my own private supplier. actually, the quality is good to excellent. It all depends on what one is going to make. I purchased some very good figured boards along with some very nice dark grained boards. He has a a lot of thick stock up to 6” thick. Lots of wide boards also. His prices are reasonable.

I saw this add and gave him a try. I got some very nice Walnut with some good figure. Since I make cutting boards I also bought some of his low cost Walnut which had a lot of sapwood with some insect damage. The price was low enough to cut off the damage and have some nice wood left. He was very easy to deal with.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
