Curly Douglas Fir and Crows Foot Hemlock
I'm new to this form and looking for information. My father worked at the Cottage Grove, Oregon Weyerhauser back in the 1960's. He was able to pick through over 6 million board feet of lumber and came out with some very pretty boards of Curly Douglas Fir and Crows Foot Hemlock. These boards have been dry kiln, and ranged from 6 feet to 16 feet long. An assortment of 2x4, 1x6, 1x8, 2x6, and 2x8. He has had it stored in his barn for over 50 years. It's in excellent condition and he has asked me to sell it for him. The questions are: What would you make out of it? And what is it worth? I found a few pictures of Curly Douglas Fir used as a guitar body, but nothing on Crows Foot Hemlock......any feedback would be appreciated. I've attached a few picture to give you an idea of what the boards look like. Thanks!
