Now that's some pretty looking wood there mike.
I could stare at that all day. Lol
But what's PNW?
Thanks Dominick- I have been staring at IT. PNW does mean Pacific North west

I bet some of that would make a nice natural edge table. And I'm not into pen making, but the table scraps would look good turned into one.

With my own portable sawmill, and access to our Ozark hardwoods, I don't often suffer from wood envy, but those boards are real attention getters! Bring some on over to Missouri & I swap you for some nice walnut!

Awww, after seeing that last photo, why not just give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it? If not walnut, how about sassafras, sycamore, cherry, honeylocust, hickory, mulberry, hedge, pecan, or persimmon?

I have no sassafras Honeylocust, pecan or mulberry- In fact never used them.
You are lucky- you have all those growing in forests- we have pine fir and cedar. The big leaf grows in western washington. We do have a great climate for yard trees though and our walnut is nice.
Sorry I could not resist the last photo......
If I am ever down your way I will bring some wood-heaven knows I have plenty- at least that is what the wife says........

Hey Mike1950, I'll be happy to help you unload your trailer (into the back of my car). I'm just outside Seattle. Where do you find such nice scores???

I have a friend in the business over there- I get the guitar guys rejects :eek:

Even though sometimes I question what they reject. I sell most of it to keep feeding that insatiable desire for more wood- this obsession has gone too far now so I am now overrun with the stuff and selling even more. Looking into a serious 40 step program but consider it hopeless.
Took pictures of this one today- no sanding- rough cut with a little water. 22" x 3"+ x 8' hernia material.

Oh I love to build but my collecting habit far surpass's my ability to build with it. Think about how many boxes come out of a plank like that- makes me dizzy just to think about it. :laughing::laughing: But at least I collect relatively dry wood- now you and Post Oakie -you really got it bad you collect the green stuff and have to let it dry....... but then again I drool at the thought of having hardwood forests...........

Mike1950,

Do you have much of your wood collection up for sale now? I've been looking for some figured maple for an upcoming project. Where are you located? I'm outside Seattle.

Do you cut down, and mill the trees yourself?
No- I find them stashed in barns- backyards- etc. You would not believe some of the stories wood has. I bought some cherry (300 ft) and white ash(220 ft) that was cut on this guys family farm in upper michigan- he moved with wood to St loius- then Salt lake-then portland Ore- then Sokane, wa. this was over 12 yrs. He decided to retire to Ecuador and sold it to me. It is well traveled wood. Seems just as dumb as my other boards when I cut them wrong though........... :laughing::laughing:
