I did my duty today and made a Black Friday purchase. I bought about 90 bf of 4/4 cherry from a gentleman
I have been buying various native species of lumber here for several years. I usually let the wood dry for one additional year in the hay loft of our barn. I paid a very fair price of $3/bf for the cherry. Out of curiosity, I also got a few pieces of Hickory.
I was expecting the usual Black Friday rush on rough-cut lumber. But this year was well beyond my expectations:
Needless to say, I had to elbow and shove my way through the throng of mostly weaker and meeker woodworkers to score my prize – but it was worth it. I can already feel the Holiday Spirit coursing through my veins!
Actually, it was as far from the real Black Friday experience as possible. My wife and young sons came with me and we had a very enjoyable family outing.
Here is the cherry:
