Yippee, score! 125 bf of 40-year-old, air-dried Walnut 2×6’s at $3/bf! Only heartwood. And there are about 2000 more bf there all hidden away by an 84-year-old disabled man who can no longer woodwork. His house was full of walnut cabinetry. Sorry for his disability, but I’m so happy about him selling it to me, I don’t even know what to do with it except save it for only the best furniture I’m able to build.

If any of you are ever in Northeast Arkansas, I’ll hook you up with this guy. He has stacks upon stacks of lumber that he’s liquidating after a lifetime of woodworking. The only thing missing for me is a few thousand $’s to buy it all.

Yah,all the way up here in New Hampsha,can ya feel the bad vibes???? Actually I don’t hate cause enough people hate me. My last score was 4 pcs of s4s Mahogany. 2 were 47”long and 2 were 54” long and all were 27” wide. Oh ya, and there were 4pcs same width and length of Poplar and it all was a full 1”.Paid a buck and a half for all the above and more.
It’s ok,hate me,I got broad shoulders(lol).
