    old wood

    I have some old short pieces of walnut and cherry wood. These are cut off pieces of out of an old log barn. Probably 12 to 16 inches long and 4 to 6 inches thick. Some have seasoned splits in the middle. You could get 4x4 to 6x6s out of them. Might make good pieces to turn. I am not a wood turner. You probably get about 16 to 20 pieces. Any one close by interested please email me. Sorry I dont want to ship. But you cant beat the price if you are close. Free to a fellow Family Wood Worker.

    That's a nice offer, Ken. If you weren't 2,184 miles from me, I'd take the old wood off your hands.

    Old cherry can get dry and crumbly. It often needs stabilizing for turning. But, when done, looks good.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    You're a good man Ken. I'm on the west coast but appreciate folks like you making FWW the family that it is.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I would rather see a fellow woodworker get some good out of it than a stranger and and a few bucks. Maybe if someone does get them they could post some pictures of things they made out of them. That would be nice.

    I'm less than 2 hours away.... but I already have a mass of woods and project plans but no time to execute. Geeze, I wish I could stop by when I visit my mom for Easter. but must pass to the Orange state.
