Something very different from the norm, but from a dollars and cents standpoint, some of you will appreciate it.
Went to an estate auction and among other great deals, came home with a couple hundred walnut boards and slabs. Most are 8'x8"x1", but some much bigger. The slab pieces are awesome as well, a few 8-10 footers 4" thick. Plenty of material for a lot of projects I've had filed away....all for $90

Sounds like my kind of weather. :sly: 

 

 

I got that... There's a shop somewhere within 60 miles of here that is similarly consistent. I'm not giving that one away... :D

 

My wife and I are planning a bit of a road trip, potentially going as far as Anchorage, AK, leaving in the next week or so. Should be nice to get out and see parts of North America we haven't seen yet; even though the reason for having the time available is about the shittiest thing that can happen to a person.

 

I've "only" been to 38 states and five provinces (six if you count airports), so I'm looking forward to bagging at least Yukon Territory and Alaska; and possibly Saskatchewan and Manitoba as well if we visit my brother in North Dakota on the "way back".

 

This will be somewhat of a thrifty trip since we'll be camping for the most part.

Frenchy, that first one I've seen on Trussini, not sure if they're the maker or not.

Wow.  That is a steal.

That walnut haul is a dream! I'd expect to pay well over $90 for just 1 big slab if it was very figured. To gain hundreds or possibly thousands of board feet for only $90? :worship:

Had a thick layer of dust and grime. Cleaned up pretty well. Has lots of scratches, chips and dings. All adds to the patina. smile.gif





Pretty sure these are the original tires...

Chrome is polishing up nicely.


GRAIL. Awesome find. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
