Default Wood Stash

Well I picked up some wood today from an estate sale that had been stored for over 20 years is dry storage.
I have to plane it to be sure ,but I think there is some usable stuff in there. Some Black Walnut,Aromatic Cedar, Red Alder, Spalted Alder, Dogwood.

Nice. That should keep you busy for a while.

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.

I'm jealous. Good thing that someone didn't burn it. Got some nice wood with outstanding grain.
