It didn't turn out like I had hoped. The ad said "1000s" of feet of walnut. This is what got my attention. It turned out to be maybe a couple hundred feet of scrap with a couple decent boards mixed in.
Too bad. How far did you have to travel for it? Maybe someone came in before the regular auction started and placed a bid on the main lot of walnut? Who knows. That's the problem with these things, you never know what to expect until you get there, but hey, you came back with some nice cherry and I'm sure the trip was something to do.
