Topic tags/keywords: walnut cherry mahogany maple free

I am doing a workshop clean-up and need to move some materials off the shelf. I would like to give this to a fellow lumberjock instead of someone else. I live in Jenison, MI and would love to see this off the shelf this first week of July. Walnut, cherry, maple, oak, and even some mahogany. Sizes are good for just about any project. Cutting boards, small tables, turnings, etc.

I think I even have a small craftsman router table that can also go away.

If you want some of this material, just send me a message and we can setup a time to meet at the house. I also have plenty of exotic veneer to share!

Dustin,

Wish I lived close enough to help you out.

Do you have a Community School with a shop class in your area?

Gift it to them and write off your donation. Win – Win solution.

I have agreed to take some of it to put into our community workshop for people to play around with and learn on. :) Always nice to get hardwood for the purpose of play without worrying about how much the BF cost.

I would love some. Wish I lived closer, Saginaw to Jenison is quite a distance.

Wow – that’s a lot of wood. Hope someone is able to score on this great deal.

If you can wait as long as Friday the 13th of July I will be driving east from Chicago and you would not be much out of the way. I can always use cut-offs. If not, I will understand :)
