    And 2 - 2' x 8' cherry in sequence that has an unusual grain. Sort of a mix of mahogany and cherry to it.

    I would have taken it all too and I very, very rarely use veneer.

    Nice haul. Don't tell the police.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Unbelievable deal. I'm not sure if you should be proud or feel guilty.
