“a long time” is equivalent to an unknown quantity of years.

Three years ago I met a guy who had several hundred board feet of solid 4/4 osage, milled 2.5 inches wide and eight feet long. Never seen anything quite like it before. The guy I purchased from said that it had been milled for flooring. He purchased a larger batch and used it throughout his home.

I bought the stuff for 3$ a stick!

I imagine that the wood had been air dried many years before it was finally milled. To be used as flooring, it had to have been stabilized slowly (I assume)...

Since I got a hold of the stack, I’ve worked it down little by little, but like I said, I’ve had it laying around for three years.

If I were to put a number on it…I’d wager that they were originally milled in 2006 and could have been cut nearly any time before that.

Specific enough? ;-)
