Heh...not as much as it could have been. We were after the cherry (and it really was cherry), and so we got that, and another pile of "miscellaneous" that happened to have several large slabs of hickory, and then the "walnut" which we bid on just because it was so ridiculously priced. We already had a pile of walnut at home, so we weren't in dire need of it.
The nice thing with all that red oak is that I now have an abundant supply of "experiment" lumber. so before I try with any of my less plentiful woods, I'll try with the red oak first. I'd hesistate to do that with walnut, no matter how much I had.
