When I saw $7500 for a single board I had to check that out. I looked up the auction on eBay.

Are you sure that’s only one board? It looks like 776 linear feet of redwood—comprised of 7 boards at 20 feet in length, 6 boards at 18 feet in length, 33 boards at 16 feet in length. It looks like all boards are 3/8” thick and 9 1/4” wide—which seems kinda odd to me. Perhaps this is left over from a resaw operation?

The grain is tight and straight (at least what is pictured)—perhaps it’s rift sawn or quarter sawn?

I wonder how one can determine if wood is “old-growth”?
