Hi all,
Here are the slabs from one of the logs I slabbed. They are 8/4 and 12/4 thick, 31” wide, and about 6’ long. I would love to swap for a maple syrup evaporator, a pottery wheel, or a pottery kiln, but if they are $5/bdft if they must be sold.

Don’t have anything to trade. Great looking slabs. What is the weight of one of them and calculate the price for one of the 8/4 slabs. Thanks JN

Hi John,
They are under 30 bdft and weigh about 90 lbs kiln dried so they are around $150 each. E-mail me at if you would like me to get a shipping quote.

I am located in Buchanan, Michigan, but I make alot of road trips. Where are you located? I have a trip north to St. Cloud, MN through Chicago, Madison, Dells, and Minneapolis in two weeks and a trip south to Bloomington, IN every few months.

Those boards really look good, are they still available? How much would shipping to the Dayton/Ohio area cost?

I live in Madison and may be interested. Are they freshly cut, or have they been drying for awhile?

Hi Rockindavan,
I have put them through the kiln once and they will be through again starting later this month. I takes a few cycles to dry thick stock.

Just visited your web page. Nice stuff, in my neck of the woods (Indy).

Do you ever air dry walnut? seems like so much of the color variations go out of Walnut when it is kiln dried. I’m thinking of a project or two I might like to do with some wilder looking walnut, 5/4 or 4/4 boards. I have seen air dried walnut with lots of sap wood, and some purple stains, all mixed in one board. Probably next Fall before I buy the wood.

Also will want some butternut slabs for Windsor chair seats, in Sept. would love not to edge join. So I’d need a hunk about 22 inches wide, 8/4 or a smidge over. Can you help?
