Well I was actually there to look through his old barns to find wood and other stuff when I came across this old beam. Apparently he had some black walnut boards, but they were sold a while back. I was wanting to get it, but he wanted to wait to see what it was worth, but I don't want to pay anywhere near retail since I was the one who found it and dug it out, he never knew it was there. It could very well have sat there another 20 years or till he died and his kids just gave everything away, so I'm actually a little frustrated he wouldn't give me a good price so I could buy it then considering the amount of my sweat that went in to finding it. But in the end, it's not mine, so there's only so much I can say about it.
