Well I made it to all 3 weekend auctions. Saturdays wasn't much, killed a little time. First one today was a bunch of junk, I have enough, so I left. Auction #3, high noon start time, I figured it might turn out alright. Didn't see much at first. Get to talking to the owners son. Tells me his dad, now deceased, used to build violins in his spare time. Really says I. Yea, all the wood over in the old outbuilding is going to be sold. So I go check it out, not a bad stash of wood. Maple of sort sorts. Don't want to look too hard, others are watching. Oh yea, bunch of Oak in the loft of the garage. Checked that out as well. Bought the whole contents on the garage loft..........$2. Bought the whole contents of the outbuilding.....$5.
Long Leaf/ Heart pine
All this cut to 2'-3"
