Thanks for the help. I found a guy relatively close to me that said he’ll mill some of this stuff for me provided it looks free of nails and other hazards— perfectly understandable. I’m going take the timbers that may be chestnut and some of the clean walnut beams to him this weekend so he can look them over. Here’s a question. If I’m given the option, what do I want him to do? I’m not an accomplished woodworker yet, but getting more into it all the time. I have a very old house, and so far have used my barn wood for accent trim and very modest furniture work. I would like to do more on the furniture front. So do I want wide, 1” thick boards, or something else?
