After seeing an ad on craigslist for a garage sale that was going to have some rough cut lumber i figured i’d buzz over and check it out. Turned out for whatever reason the gentleman was getting out of woodworking and looking to sell a bunch of lunber he’s had drying in his garage for years. As i look around i saw maple, cherry, and Peruvian Walnut. Playing a little niave i asked what i was worth and how much he wanted to sell. He said all of it. I passed on any of the scrap pine 2x lumber and took averything else. Not know exacts i got….

8 – 8’+ x 5-8” wide x 4/4 thick Cherry. Some of it’s in rough shape but thass ok.
4 – large 8/4 hard maple and 2-4/4 hard maple lengths and widths vary (see pic)
and 2 wide pieces about 5’ long of peruvian Walnut.

Everything for 50.00

As you can see from the pic my bottom shelf at the floor is scraps and all oak, then next shelf up is all my garage sale purchase, then next up is all QSWO (going to be endtable soon) and then top shelf that you can barely see is all cut off’s of walnut and cherry.

Well not that’s my racks full i guess i should get to builing with it all…
