This past November a local fellow was retiring. His business had been building custom cabinets and built-in furniture for yachts. He wanted to sell off his wood pile quickly and had priced it massively below what one would pay for such lumber in the open market. I was very lucky to have found and taken his offer right away.
There were two 16/4 8 foot pieces of maple
The pile on the floor in the foreground, mostly live edge maple and cherry, some ash. I have no special thing for live edge but it’s not disqualifying.
and lastly the big bonanza pile, same mix, with bonus maple monolith (side right).
For a while I am no longer constrained by short supply of wood. If only it were the same with time itself.
