    Passing some wasteland today I spotted these, they are solid oak.

    Well, I was not going leave them, no way. I don’t drive these days, so I had to carry them about a mile home. Good job done don’t you think. πŸ™‚

    Funny how people must have passed by there innumerable times without thinking anything of the “junk” sitting there. Hard to imagine a better example of “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

    Great find and well worth the work, I’m sure!

    Thanks Robin. That will be a challenge resawing that lot into something useable.

    Now if I had a bandsaw, if only. πŸ™‚

    Great find Ken it will be interesting to see what you can get out of it,based on what i have seen on the various sites it does not have to be blemish free they iether leave the defects as a feature or fill the voids with epoxy resin

    Thanks David, I have been having a look around the different websites, and you are right. The defects really can add some nice character, depending on what you make.

    I’m thinking of saving for a bandsaw, not just for this, it would also be great for getting thinner stock for boxes and drawer sides and the like.
