    Custom furniture quote near Burlington

    A lady at church has asked for someone to make some furniture from her 25+ year old walnut (air dried). She wants furniture made for her grandson.
    I don't know what pieces she would like made. She has a big stack of walnut that was her late husband's.
    If you are interested, I will give you her contact information.
    She lives in Alamance County, near Village of Alamance and Burlington.

    Thanks,
    Joe Isley

    Re: Are there any furniture makers for sale

    You might want to change the title to this thread. I read it as you were looking to purchase a business that makes furniture. May not be getting the 'right' people to look.

    Jack I have been drying and using walnut for a good 35 years and I have used air dried wood almost entirely. Walnut sapwood has had some infestation but the heartwood of walnut unlike the oak I have dried never seems to harbor any powder-post beetles.

    Maybe I have been lucky but that drying experience has been in 4 very different locations and no troubles. Walnut trees and walnut sawdust is some pretty mean stuff. Maybe it keeps the bugs out? After 25 years, I think what could happen is done.

    Re: Are there any furniture makers for sale

    great to know. I do not use lumber that is not from a cabinet supplier, so i tend to be extremely over cautious. Can you please get more info on what she wants?
    Thanks
