BurkBob, nice score on the cherry for sure. I’d go back and get the rest, good stock is getting harder to find. Hello Burly Bob, how big a piece is that walnut? Always enjoy working with walnut and cherry, just a pleasure to work. I’m reminded of another story, a friend gave me a call asking if I had any wormy chestnut in stock. He was making a top for a Stanley 45 box, and needed enough for the top piece. I told him no, I didn’t have any at the time, but to wait and see if I could locate some. Just so happened that weekend while at a garage sale, the guy who was having the sale, asked if anyone needed any lumber. I asked what type of wood, he responded, “wormy chestnut”, lol. For the sum of 10.00 he filled my pick up with wood. I called my friend and he had gone ahead and ordered some from a distributor, costing him about 35.00 with shipping. Funny how things happen.
