1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    First time poster.
    I was fortunate enough to buy a lumber collection that had been in dry storage for 35 years. I believe there is about 3-400 BF of Teak and 2000 BF of Genuine Mahogany. I am still sorting through it and planing enough to see the species. I have sent samples to a wood identification PhD guy and should hear from him soon.

    The Teak boards are mostly 4/4 and stamped w/ a diamond or a TYT logo and/or Thailand. They are 6 - 16" wide and 4 - 8' in length. I feel sure they would grade Select. No sapwood that I have noticed.

    The Mahogany is a rich color. Deeper than newer lumber. There is a lot of wide boards. 4/4, 5/4, 6/4 and some 8/4. Most are 6-8' in lengths w/ some 10 footers. Moisture content on both species is 10-11% +/-.

    I am looking to sell the Teak and most of the Mahogany to 1-2 buyers to recoup my initial investment. I am located 1 hour from Atlanta. Serious inquiries, please. Thank you. CrickCraft.
