    abandoned shop

    Tree found in an abandoned shop. Think of it still may be used something. What is the point of view sort? Or rather, across the fire?

    Thanks Larry! I'll be cautious.

    Could be some real treasures there, or just fancy firewood

    No way to know ahead of time, I agree with Larry, free would be the only way I'd bother

    Still looks solid but nevertheless, a gamble.
    What kind of wood is it?
    You can offer to haul it away if they will pay you a fee.

    I agree-free is good but risky to spend money on it. There could be a lot of nice wood in there but it will take a huge amount of work to cull out the junk and salvage the good stuff. That big stack of veneer could be worth something depending on what species it is. I'm curious if you know what kind of wood it is or if there are several species in there. Do you have a place to store this? Or a way to move it?

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Thanks for the replies guys! I think that renounce the idea. Too big for me to risk. Otherwise, the whole oak. This is not my business.
