    This is what Noah used for his ark

    Im not sure if my next project will be easy.
    I cant lift this white oak myself, havent figured out how to cut it down to size yet, so I can handle it. 3x12x96, the floor piece is 2x12x96, much easier to handle.
    I dont know what I was thinking when I let the guy load 100 linear feet of 3x12 white oak. What would I use it for besides building a wooden ship?

    I was going to make my son a dining table out of white oak and walnut, but I have so much maple, tons of it, tons of 6/4, 8/4 and 10/4, so I might go with maple instead.
    Im thinking this heavy stuff for a table near my stairs, since my son is taking the player piano with him, Ill have an empty wall.

    With the boards for my stalled table project, I tend to do more 'sliding' from one flat surface to another, rather than lift them to move them.

    I've got a couple of ridgid flip top supports I use to facilitate the moving around...

    If it's Noah's Ark wood you don't measure it in inches, you measure it in cubits..

    Recently, someone sent me an e-mail about a guy who built a genuine, full sized, ark using old methods and tools. It was one of about 50 I get every morning and did not save. Pretty fascinating. I'll do a search and if I find will post a link.
