My friend called this morning.... Well he called last week and told me they were tossing out all the Hardwood lumber from my old shop. "I'll see if I can get you some" "No No" they say, they sold it...
Well today They delivered the wood and the buyer said he didn't want any shorts and would only pay for the 8' or bigger pieces. They were tossing the off-cuts in the dumpster. My buddy rescued them.
Now what to do with Mahogany 15" wide 4/4 a couple @ 6' and 4 @ 4' Then there was the 2' 3' 4' 8/4 Mohogany and some Walnut 8/4 tossin a few Maple 12" wide and some Oak and Cherry plus the single piece of Cedar... (and a piece of something I can't figure out, Will run it through the planer and see).
About 300 BdFt of pieces 4-6 ft long (and a 12" x12" piece of Ash 4/4
Oh yeah, my (another) friend called and said she bought this table at auction , for the cast iron base, but didn't like the top, "Do you want this top?" turned out it was 1.5" thick Oak 38" X 38" .... " OK, I'll take it off your hands..."
Filled my Truck and now there is not a clear spot in my garage (already filled with deck material and kid's riding toys. (BTW there has not been a modern car in there for over 20 years, not including the Model T, I built two winter's ago)
So then he E-mails me and says "I hope you can get a project or two from that" I'm still behinder that a one armed paper hanger with a hang nail... But I guess I can Try to find something to do....
Does this sound like a Gloat? Tee Hee Tee Hee
