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 need a planer before I try any serious furniture projects!

I see about 7 roughly 5” X 8’ walnut planks.
If so, that’s about 23 BF (board feet or foot) of timber.
I can make 24 blanks from 1BF —that’s 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.
:biggrin:
