But if you come wearing that suit in your pic or wearing knee knocker pants and flip flops you will get a Houston price on all lumber. :D

Which is about half the California Plates tax.

Thanks Dave. Very simple construction. The first time I met Rickey while visiting Richard and Linda, he gave me a tour of his estate and sent home with me, a small piece of the curly maple that would fit in my suitcase. It was kind of like the folks in the mall passing out free food, knowing that I wouldn't be able to resist buying a truck load later:D. Because of the shape and small size, I had to resaw the piece and piece meal it into a workable size. The lining, outside corner splines and top were from available walnut. The small lift pull was purchased from Horton Brasses. Finish is three coats of ARS glossy per my wife's instructions.

Is it blasphemous to qtr saw walnut? I've often wondered what it would look like. There is a grains style that i like the look of and I seem to only see it on the portions of the board that approach quarter sawn.

Oh i didn't realize that those were QS cuts. I saw them and thought they looked awesome. Yes i look at every picture in this thread. It satisfies some inner need that allows me to stay away from the lumber yard longer between fixes.

Byrdie if a backwoods country boy from Minnesota will come wearing his overalls, work boots and hat, he will get the Tennessee Discount Price. But if you come wearing that suit in your pic or wearing knee knocker pants and flip flops you will get a Houston price on all lumber. :D

That suit was when I was best man at my best friend's wedding some years ago.  It were a rental and probably wouldn't fit any more.

Was in bibs (thermal) and work boots today.  Went out to the barn today to have my horse's hooves trimmed and ended up holding five more of the owner's horses for the farrier.  No stranger to work although I run out of breath a little sooner these days.

Chestnut we QS around 200 bdft of walnut and have around 400 bdft  more to cut. They are some short walnut pieces, that I had for some time.

Dale wants all his lumber QS.

Wood porn is addictive.

If this is porn does buying the lumber fall under prostitution?

Chestnut i try to get everything QS. It is very stable when it's drying. Very rarely does it twist, cup or check. Also have more strait grain.
