Check with area tree services. I've been amazed at some of the wood I've gotten at no charge. Of course nothing is completely free. You need to be able to drop everything at a moment's notice to move a log out of the yard with no damage, and you'll often find metal in the logs, but it has been very worthwhile for me.

As long as you're practicing on the low value logs, cut blocking and stickers for air drying the good stuff, and maybe build a milling/drying shed. Good luck!

That's kinda cheap. A mill around here sells Walnut for 25-35 / bf.:eek:
How much do they sell, and in what form? I could see that for pen turning blanks or fancy gun stocks, but if you can get that for slabs, walnut really is "black gold", and I'm "loadin' up my truck and movin' (my slabs) to Beverley"!
