Well, I have been living off of the wood from this auction for years, but it's time to get rid of the last. Looking at how big that pile was to begin with, I never thought I would get through it all.

It has all found a home at the High School wood shop. Hopefully future wood butchers will carry on our hobby! About 6 1x 12+ x 8 foot planks, and a handful of larger timbers. They should get a lot of practice on the jointer, planer and bandsaw

Thanks for the update on this 1913 post. Interesting that 5 years later, you have that much wood left.

I'm going to pass my tools along to a family member, or see about donating them to a woodshop at a local community college. Or maybe I'll leave a directive with details to post the sale on here and to make it available to someone who loves this stuff but is a little light in the wallet. The buyer better bring a big truck!

The picture here shows about 20% of the shop. (they call it a 'Lab' now, because they teach construction technology there as well) I am very jealous of what they have. There are 2 big Powermatic lathes, 2 Powermatic table saws, 2 Powermatic drill presses, a Grizzly radial drill press, a Big Powermatic bandsaw and 2 14" bandsaws, 2 belt/disk sander stations, a 15" Powermatic planer, and some old scroll saws. The weak link in the shop is the jointer is only 6". They consolidated a lot of the stationary tools in the high school, as the adjoining middle school doesn't use them anymore, and that teacher wants more open space.

The nice thing is the big saws and planer will be able to handle the 4 inch thick pieces better than I ever could in my shop!

The metal working side of the shop is being decommissioned, as that is being taught at the technical high school across the county.

The budget doesn't allow for a lot of 'nice' wood for their projects, so they are always looking for donations. If you have material that is not perfect for your projects, but too good for the woodstove, you might want to see if your school can use it. They also look for donations of pen kits and shop supplies. There are rules on things they can accept, so you'll have to ask ahead of time.

I only had one technical education class in high school, yet I remember Mr. Maine fondly, and have used a lot of the things he taught me to this day. My oldest had 2 years in tech ed, and learned so much from Mr. Owens. My youngest is in her first year of tech ed and loves it. It's a great change of pace from her 'serious' subjects. They get a lot of life lessons in these classes that teenagers need to hear!

Holy Cow, someone obviously advertised that auction wrong if the wanted to make good money. If I were you I'd be out in the shop, sitting in a chair in the center of it, drinking a beer, with a big ole smile on my fact. You done good.

!
The walnut and cherry from that lot are long gone, but there was A LOT of poplar. I have used it for book cases, benches, signs, toys, game boards......but it was time to send the last few boards away. I hate having to walk across wood piles to get to the far side of the shop.
