My wood guy is moving. Time has come, and he didnt have much left to offer me at this time.
He wasnt even there when I got there, I backed my truck in, he said start picking and choosing what I wanted.
Now, Im not a wimp,, but unfortunately Im still way under the weather, and my strength level is way down, but I climbed through his crap, exposed alot of good stuff, and went to work with one of his guys.
When all finished, the truck loaded pretty full the rear tires felt the load, my wood guy said, ok, you have around *** bf so give me *** dollars and you got a great deal.
I asked him if its usuable bf he counting, since I took alot of short stuff and some cracked stuff, he smiled and said, you always get a great deal, youll see.
So anyone want to guess? How many bf I got today?
Alot of 12 footers, 8 footers, 6 footers, all the 4 footers and less went inside the back seat area.
Ash, white oak, mahogany, maple,(6/4 up through 10/4 on the maple, great for legs and posts, alot of maple)a drop of poplar, spanish cedar, basswood perhaps, I declined on the pine, he had tons of that.
Shoot in a guess, we can see who wins when I measure it all up later, Ill have help at 3 to unload it, and Ill count it out and sort it all out. Hope my price paid was well worth it, this is some miserable day, Torrential rainfall with heavy heavy winds.
the bottom left of picture, with the blue end sealent is all ash, all 12 footers.
The top uncovered and wet is all the thick maple.The long piece on top with the red flag is something like a 2.5 x 3.5 piece of mahogany, 13 or so feet long, nice legs piece
Jim M-he didnt have any parts cabinets, although he had alot of parts to sell, I had little interest in his hardware.
He wanted me to take carved pieces for mantles and he had mucho carved table legs, pallets full of them, but I declined, even though He probably would have thrown them in for pennies. Not my style, and I dont have a fireplace.
Jim, joe, you guys gotta come take some of this stuff off my hands.
