Is the wood even worth saving? Or is it rotted you think?

For 70 Bucks for that much walnut I am ready to hop in my truck first thing in the morning

I would at least need to check it out. That’s a lot of walnut for $70.

Even if it planes out so half is usable…it seems like a good deal…..and almost certainly you could make some half inch stock too…make some segmented boxes with this and some Maple?????
I’d buy it if I were you…

Doesn’t look too bad, especially if it’s been held off the ground it shouldn’t be rotten. Seems like an ok deal for $70.

I say go look. If its no good for furniture, you may have the first walnut bench as it would be cheap wood for that and looks to be enough as well. It would work for that at the least. I say go for it.
