Did he say Free? Yes he did. What’s the catch? You come and get it and take it all! No picking through it, you have to be able to take it all. What is available: I have two large stacks; one is Hickory and the other is Ash. This wood is what’s left of thousands of board feet that I bought at an auction of a molding company that was going out of business. So it’s in long lengths from 12 to 16 feet. It’s all thin cut so the widest pieces are around 3 inches with a lot of it thinner. It’s all rough sawn and mostly a full inch thick. See below photos.

If you want to take one stack or the other I’m okay with that, but I prefer one person lay claim to it and come take it all. Since it’s all long stuff you’ll need a rack and even at that it’s probably more than one pickup load, even with a one ton. Or if you want to bring a sawzall or circular saw and cut it all in half I can provide you with the space to do that too.

The wood is located at my shop in Tracy CA. My doc says I’m not supposed to be doing any heavy lifting right now so if you want it, you may want to bring some help. First person who lays claim to it all gets it, but if you also want it post a reply here and if the first person falls through I’ll go down the line until I get somebody to come get it. Other than taking it all there’s no catch. I’ve had it in the shop for almost a year thinking I may use it for something, but I still have my private stash that I kept from the auction wood so I’ll never get to this stuff. I’d rather see it go to somebody that will use it for something.

This photo is the hickory:

This photo is the ash (it’s under a bunch of stuff right now but it’s just a little bit smaller than the Hickory pile:

Hmmm, no takers on the free wood? I’m going to be out of town until Monday so I’ll check back in here on Monday, but if nobody wants it by then I’m going to put it on Craigslist to give away. It will go pretty fast there.

It’s available Mike and I see you’re right next door in Manteca so it will work out perfect. You don’t have to take it all in one trip, but if you can take it all I’d appreciate it. I’m not going to be available again until next week any day but Tuesday. Are you available to get it next week?
