Donate it to your local hacker space. You'll get a nice tax break, and it will get used and appreciated.

Buy a prefab shed. Rent a storage unit. Build a quick wood rack on the outside of the garage with a shed roof or tarps. 

You saw how rusty his tools got? Might as well just burn it this winter

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.

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. .

I bought a job lot of veneer a few years ago. Lots of it. For a whopping £100. It cost me more for the shelving to store it!

But all the suggestions regarding the bargain price for all that hardwood are good. Snap it up and then work out which of the suggestions work best for you.

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.

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.

This might fill the void of the other woodworking one that was canceled because of the nazi tattoo guy who lied about his dead father.

Wow, it looks really stupid when I write it out like that.

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.

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.

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.

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.
