Any plans yet? I love working with flitches when I can, but they are hard to find in my area. I am a bit jealous.

I hope you sealed them properly. It looks like they’re already checking.

Beautiful though. Love the colors.

I’m not adept at estimating board feet yet, so what would one of the larger slabs run total?

I’m guessing:

~18” wide x 2” thick by 15’ long === 1.5’ x 2” x 15’ = 45 bd ft per big slab

Maybe 37 ft if it’s 15” wide.

I have 9 slabs in the Flitch they are around 20” wide x 14.5’ Long x 8/4 Thick. I got around 48bdft in each slab. Yes they are sealed and shed drying.

Jeff,

Thanks. That sure is nice lumber. If I ever make enough to buy some nice slabs I may have to drive up to Denton to check out your stuff.
