  1. Based upon my calculations, just the 5 largest white oak sticks are 84 BF. Then probably at least another 50 in smaller sticks. That is assuming of course that the smaller ones are actually white oak. The big rift sawn 8/4 boards are marked.
  2. The issue is, this is the first of probably 4 loads and I have no way of storing it all. I have a neighbor that wants all the white oak so trying to pick it out and come up with a price.
  3. I cannot even figure out what a lot of these sticks are.
  4. Load #1 ready for unloading. Sooo much fucking sticks. Had a commercial woodworker there loading up his expensive edge bander and he said I had at least 18 BF of Wenge, 250 of walnut and even more of the hard maple and oak.
  5. Got the quote for adding a sub panel with 12 circuits to the garage with 2 240v outlets and hardwiring the heater for $4,000.00. Copper must be $800 a foot these days.
  6. Yeah, I actually have a full set of Bow Clamps that should help as well.
  7. Did the jointing work (sort-of) for the top of the new dog crate for my basement. Walnut sides and cherry racing stripe. Only have a 6” jointer and the planer only goes to 13, so I am going to have to half ass it and try to let dominoes make everything flat. Walnut is pretty good but the cherry lifts in one corner.
  8. Decided to go beyond rustic for my stick holder. I call it ghetto rustic. Just needed to keep sticks off the floor and needed a power strip for the equipment on that wall.
  9. My project this weekend is designing and building a rack to store lumber in the storage unit. Also trying to come up with something for storing a lot of it as my house.
  10. Are you saying that it does not take you months to finish a project? Starting and finishing in one day seems impossible based upon my 4 months for bedside tables project experience.
  11. Ended up heading to Texas to pick up the Supermax as it was a bit too large of a project for my dad. Smaller than I expected, which is perfect and really no sign of wear at all. Got it all put back together after transport to the farm where it will live until I have time to drive the truck down to pick it up.
  12. Bought it all. Working now to line up local buyers for much of the non-Maple/Walnut. Have lined up enough to double the cost I paid and I still have about 90% of the sticks still left to sell. Most ridiculous pieces were two 16’x14” Oak Quartersawn 8/4 and the 14’x12” Walnut 12/4 behemoth. .
  13. I have a conditioned 10x14 storage unit for winter boat storage I guess I could throw it in. The main reason I was going there was to see this bandsaw, but it is 230v 3 Phase. Should have seen the plug in the pics.
  14. The issue is…I have nowhere at all to store all this 10-14’ hardwood. I know it is a great deal. But I cannot even store the wood I have.
  15. Cabinet shop going out of business 5 miles from the house. Can get all of this for $400. All at least 4/4 outside of a few scraps. Oak, Walnut, Sapele and Maple from what I can tell.
