My wife has all kinds of ideas, I just finished explaining why I would
need a 8 inch jointer to make her a fine walnut hutch. Now I just need
to find a deal on one.
Until then how does a new bench with the base made out walnut sound.
Better deal than the one I looked at a while back! I found an ad for some
oak and walnut boards some gent was selling, asking $300. Went over and
looked it all over, he wandered off so I had time to measure it all up. I
figure it was worth $150 retail at the local borg. When I tell him he wants
too much he says he has another pile of lumber in the garage that goes with
it, so I check that over! Oh goody pineywood twoburfours, and a couple of
2X6'ers too! I was doing a remodel at the time so I could sue them. It
brought the retail value of the deal close to his asking price. I offered
him a $100, but he said he had a guy coming the next day that was gonna buy
it all! I left him my phone number, but he never called back. Pulled in some
sucker no doubt!
I wondered why he did not show me all the wood right away! I think he was
trying to sucker me in!
Years ago I learned how bad I am at computing bf. I took a 6ft by 6in
1in board and put it to bf. When I'm out in the yard looking for wood
I can come pretty close to bf.
This guy had plenty of money and I think he just wanted his garage
empty. Out here in Az there are plenty of folks who think old wood
should be sold as antique wood and commands a premium. Same with
their rusted craftman routers and saws
