Frickman I tell them the same thing.I also tell them that by the time you load it bring it here and I charge you for sawing it I can sell you some out of my barn already dry cheaper. Everybody has it in there mind that walnut is worth a lot of money when they call and try to sell it to me. Not many want to pay a lot when I try to sell it. I do better on oak it's much easier to sell.

Hi Ya
I have to tell you about the metal I hit in my big walnut tree. Most of it was from the revolution. 1798 revolution that was. Round lead shot- dozens of em, other bullets from other periods and a few iron nails for good measure. But it was worth it. The tree gave me 17 tons of fine black walnut, which is seasoning nicely in my drying house. It'll go on ebay soon- already some interesting bids from local customers.
It was worth the pain I have to say.
So come all ye gunstock makers
come all ye veneer cutters
come all ye table and piano makers,
come to daddy and see my treasure house. But bring your check books.

Swing blade Andy go it all  (at last)

Old Age and Treachery will outperform Youth and Inexperence. The thing is, getting older is starting to be painful.
