Default Dumpster diving!

Went to the sawmill and picked up about 25 bd. ft. of unsteamed Walnut for trophy blanks and then went dumpster diving at my friend's cabinet shop and came back with enough Maple, Cherry, and Hickory to make about 5 more cutting boards. There's more under the CNC. Actually, he's saving scraps for me and told me to get all I care to load up. I'll make sure to give him one of the cutting boards!

Nice score Dave.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Pretty neat how things work out. Maybe you could make some cutting boards for his customers?

Must be nice to have a friend who gives you free wood that is good quality. Could you make something for your friend as a "Thank you?"

So David what does unsteamed mean? A flooring mill I worked at use to use steam for the heat in their kiln. Other than that I don't understand.
