Unloading Day and finding hidden gems
One of the things I always am on the search for is 8/4 and thicker stock in tiger maple or any figured wood. This load has that and more. Nice slabs of 8/4 and 12/4 tiger maple. Lots of natural edges. They will make some excellent slab top tables. I also have a lot of 4/4 hard curly maple in this load. The figure is incredible. Not a lot of wide stock, but just super tight curlt and nice white color. I need to find some guitar makers. This will make some wonderful stuff. I plan on sending out a newsletter this coming week. I will have some cool stuff for sale. If I don't have you on my email list and you want on, go to my web site, www.bobkloes.com and click on the email link. I will be happy to add you on the list.
Tomorrow comes the new load from the mill. The weather has been very unusual here. 60's and 70's all week. This stuff needs to get on stickers and get air drying. I would hate to lose it to sticker stain. I guess there will be some super nice stuff coming .Flame birch, hard tiger maple and birdseye. Should make for a long day stacking and stickering. I will get some pictures and do another blog about that. Hope you all are enjoying the weather.
