Unfortunately, my location only has wood flooring rejects on craigslist when you search for woods, hardwoods, building woods, furniture woods…etc etc etc…

I don’t know if that is a good deal where you are….but anyone in my location would snap it up also…course I am not as far away as Tony…but far enough….

Thanks, Dan! I checked e-mail at work with my phone, and saw the lumberjock mail about you posting this. No way I could respond to a craigslist post with my phone, I’d be better off with a tin can and string.I sent a reply when I got home, and picked this up on the way into work yesterday.He has more to sell that he hasn’t listed yet.

Now, the hard part: What to do with it. I’m thinking a live edge coffee table. I’ve never tried it before, but I know a good place to ask for info.
