Well, so I’m not the only one with problematic wood storing, lol. Mr Ron, I remember when plywood came in 1 1/2” thicknesses, and when linoleum was a highly sought after answer to bare floors. Mark, always a good idea to buy the wood when you can even if you don’t need it right away. Splinter glad to hear you have adequate storage space for those special pieces, I envy you. I remember another time when I saw a ad in the paper for straight grained fur at very reasonable prices. I went to see what the man had, man what an amazing amount of good fur. The lengths were 16 footers. He had 2×12’s, 2×10’s, 2×8’s, and of course 2×4’s. I asked why he was selling it off, he said he had planned on building a 3 stall garage and it wasn’t going to happen now. The wood was stored under cover for 3 years. I needed 2×12’s for a front porch stairway, so I asked the price of them, get ready, he said I could have any or all for 10 cents a foot. I bought as much as I could manage to store in my shop. I told my friends who were woodworkers and they just blew it off, saying they didn’t need any now. Few months later they were coming by the shop trying to buy what I had in stock, notice the words ‘trying to buy”. They should have bought when I did, but, oh well. Okay, thanks for all your input and stories.
