I would say “no pic = didn’t happen” but you would probably post a pic and we would hate you even more.

Nice score.

I got a phone call this afternoon from a farmer who had a walnut tree blow over in a storm. hould be at least 3 logs with the smallest about 2 ft in diamenter. Also he said he had several cherry trees he would like removed so he wouldn’t have to cut as many sapplings from the fence rows in his pastures. I can’t wait to see what I cut out of tgose logs. All he wants in return is a custom gunstock!

Bandit, that’s why I preferenced my statement with “Today”...

There’s always someone to come along and suck more than I do! ;)

Bhog – not done getting it, hoping to finish at a few hundred board feet.

TrBlu – just you wait dude… ;)

This is on of three trays I made from that Black Cherry. Tray is 5/4” thick. Edges are 4/4 White oak, from a couple rafters from the same barn as the cherry. The totes are made from some Black Walnut found on the site, also free. Barn beams? They were 4×6 x8’ Beech, and made a nice desk top..

and a Bench top…

We have pictures, so I guess it DID happen…

I still have a couple 100 BD ft of native Iowa red oak that is over 100 years old. I have made a number of items from this and one was posted on LJ a couple years ago.

We’ve all landed good wood deals over the years. My latest was 7 planks of old growth Tennessee walnut for 5 10’ cedar logs, and the 6th cedar log he planked for me, and the 7th I kept for bowls. The walnut planks were 8’ by 12-14” and 4/4. Crotch and quilt in every one.

But my big score was back in 2002, when I filled my SUV six times with now 140 year-old oak and chestnut from a barn I used to own in SW Pennsylvania. Free. It laid in the loft for decades and decades. Still have a lot of that. I’m sure somebody has done better, like owning 30 acres and taking what they need when they need it.

I once saw a 30’, 18” dark walnut tree in Pennsylvania plank up for $6000. It all went to gunstock people, who dictated the cutting patterns.
