Default Picked up some walnut today from an auction

A family was downsizing and old off their shop at auction. Picked up some clamps and all this mostly black walnut lumber for $100!

Lots of potential blanks in this haul! I am going to have to learn how to make segmented blanks.

That’s deserving of becoming furniture.
The offcuts and drops will make plenty of pens.

I see about 7 roughly 5Ē X 8í walnut planks.
If so, thatís about 23 BF (board feet or foot) of timber.
I can make 24 blanks from 1BF óthatís 560 blanks.
Thinking out loud:

Might be a crime to cut all this into pen blanks.
Cherry pick the most highly figured for pens and store the rest until you have a jointer and planer.

Good idea. I also have stacks of white oak slabs from a tree that I had sawed up two years ago... need some ideas on how to combine the two woods.

I have even more boards under the tarp...
