Am I crazy?
 
Reclaimed lumber goes for so much!

After the next windstorm that knocks a barn down again, I just may have to see if I can ask to salvage some lumber! I have a half-cocked idea of buying a planer and jointer on credit, and selling the reclaimed lumber to pay the new tools off.

What do you guys think?

Yes, you are crazy....:yes:...but aren't we all?......I think its a pretty cool idea.....a bit risky...but hey...no risk....no reward.....

That's what I'm talking about! Shoot, I have all the farm equipment to get the lumber to my garage. I know I'll never make A LOT doing it, but if I can gather a couple hundred $$$ I'm good! :)

Better invest in a good metal detector too.

Yeah I thought about that... it would definitely be "labor intensive"
