Ash planks given to me
 
My buddy had some tress taken down and one was ash. Someone he knows cut some board lenghths from the tree and my friend grabbed a 13' piece, which unfortunately twisted before he could mkae the bar top he wanted. Just dropped off two 3 1/2' long by 20" across by 4 1/2" to 5" thick pieces. To use I'll have to cut the long ways with a chain saw then my direct drive delta should be able to cut the rest. Great looking stock. He has two more pieces that I might scoff as well. Should make some nice lures. Not a knot in the wood anywhere.

Frank, why not rip in half to 42x10 on a bandsaw? Then a planer so you could rip up square blanks? Be happy to do it for you if you can get up this way.

I can resaw up to 16" on my bandsaw. Sounds like some good coffee table stock
