Wooden Plane - mini wood gloat

#29 wooden plane by The Goodall Co., Pittsburgh, PA ... no idea of a date, useable with a little work, but likely not much more than a conversation piece.
150 bf 4/4 black walnut, 8- 10' x 6- 8" - $1.05/bf ... all I could politely store in a local relative of SWMBO's garage during a long weekend trip up to Arkansas to register my youngest daughter in college.
Plane was a gift from said relative, and the walnut I found at a small mill down the road from Arkadelphia just by asking around. There was plenty more to be had.. When I haul the youngster up with her college "stuff" in a couple of months, I will buy some more and justify utilizing the trailer both ways.
Also saw the mother lode of kiln dried white oak (beaucoup FAS), but it was all plain sawn, except for the accidental board. Must of been 20 acres of 10' high ricks, stacked side by side, all white oak. I was introduced to the mill owner by the relative who had known him all his life ... was told I could buy one board or a thousand, and pick and choose all I want.
Saw a lot of reasonably priced oak and walnut in Arkansas, at least compared to big city prices here in Houston. Would be worth it for some wreckers around the Houston, SE Texas area to make up a shopping trip with a couple of trailers. I believe I've made some good contacts in that regard if anyone is interested in a future trip.
Off to England Thursday AM to marry the oldest off ... gonna be a sea change around the house come August. Just not making enough sawdust at the moment to suit.

hum, would be interested to know where around Arkadelphia you found the saw mill. I went to college in Arkadelphia back in the 60's but havn't been back since. Still, I'm not that far away and have a son who lives sorta near in Little Rock. Mike in Arkansas

The white oak was down the road in Gurdon and should be easy to find. There was also a big mill that deals in hardwood in Bierne (sp?), just a few miles from there. I had a personal introduction In both above cases from a long time local, but got the impression you might have to know someone to buy direct..
The walnut? ... well, it was a one man, Woodmizer type operation and I'd have to kill you if I told you, especially were it to be all gone when I go back in August. :)

Nope, the diploma mill across the street :). Always figured it had to be if they let me graduate after the dismal effort I put in. Fortunately, I have some nice very old 4/4 walnut I inherated but always looking out for inexpensive wood. Just got 230 bf of red oak at 1.00 bf but it's plain sawn and air dried. Like to run across some quarter sawn white oak but don't know anyone who might introduce me to the mill owners. But you never know and 'Have Truck, Will Travel". Have a great time visiting next time and picking up your loads of lumber. Regards, from a jealous Arky. Mike in Arkansas

If I find that he doesn't mind me plastering his name/operation all over the Internet, I'll let you know. But it might be August before I that find out, so keep in touch hereabouts.

You neglected to announce the greatest gloat of all! You are marrying the oldest off! As the father of a seventeen year-old, I can only hope that either of us will last to see such a thing. Fortunately, I can lock the shop from the inside.
Congrats.
