Went to a Christmas (or Christpocalypse) party last night at a friends house. It’s about an hour and a half drive, so thankfully they had a spare room for me, especially knowing the quality of his home brews. A few months ago the same friend said he was replacing their porch. I knew the house was old so I asked him to save me a few pieces. I saw it piled in the basement corner last night, most people would have thrown it out.
For party gifts, I gave him my beer box that I made, got a wheel of my favorite stinky cheese to add to her spread of food, and demo roasted some some green coffee I brought for them this morning.
Getting ready to leave today, once I got the porch boards outside, I realized they were mahogany. So I came home with a case of various home brews and a pile of 100+ year old mahogany tongue and groove. Sweet!
Some people see junk, I see potential guitar neck!
