Thistle Posted April 29, 2015 Report Share Posted April 29, 2015 I have a friend who is clearing a nineteenth century hotel grounds for redevelopment, I already snagged some Purple Heart, mahogany and various species that made up the only two remaining window frames after a fire took out most of the building in the mid 1980s but he is now begining to fell what is best described as a small Forrest of very large trees. He's got an Alaskan mill and has told me that he would happily cut me some boards of the various types. Yew, beech, walnut and others like oak and holly (which I've never seen so big) all in 2" boards more than guitar body in width and effectivly quarter sawn. My question is, what's a ball park figure for time in drying it? Is it worth even getting from him in that raw state or am I barking up the wrong tree ?
