Well, its time to start weeding through what is left of my grandfathers wood collection. Unfortunatly his barn burned YEARS ago, where about 90% of the wood was. Most of this was cut 25-40 years ago. The majority of it is black walnut, and some cherry in there somewhere. Most of the large planks are at the bottom of the pile (also the ones I need). Most of the boards are rough cut, and about 10 ft in length. Width varies from about 4" to 14"+ Hoping to find the right pieces to have a guitar or 2 made from it. There is also a decent sized piece of ebony to use for the fretboard.. provided its a good piece.
We have to break out one of the windows in the attack of his old vetrinary office (now a garage) to get the pile out.. they re-moddled around when he died, and converted the building into the garage, and left a lot of the heavy-impossible-to-move-out-of-the-attic-stuff up there .
It would have been nice if my family had moved all of the heavy stuff out (like a very heavy wood lathe) BEFORE they took out the stairs.
