I am willing to bet market rate for those planks is "not cheap" to "holy shiat". I hope the insurrectionists get charged full price.

Old growth mahagony? Hell yeah it'll be expensive. There's a reason the fast growing varietals like sapele and lauan are now being marketed as exotic hardwoods rather than the trash they really are. And it's not because there's a bunch of old growth mahagony available. And this is old old growth. I'm sure it's spectacular.

I remember the protests at the Wisconsin State Capitol in 2011 which Republican Mike Huebsch claimed caused $7.5 in damage, later reduced to $270,000. Maybe we should get him to evaluate the damages to the US Capitol, we could pay off the national debt.

What is the going rate for steel recycling?

Participants in 'The First F'around and Find Out Day' should have the diesel F-250's and pew pew pew toys recycled to cover the cost of repairs.

Maybe it is time to boil up a few of the ringleaders to make some traditional glue for the wood work repairs.

Interesting story.

We built a bedroom set for a guy from a walnut tree his grandfather felled like 50 years prior. Air dried. Metallic reds, purples and greens. Most amazing material we ever worked with.

Someone could make a business out of salvaging the exotic woods out of derelict boats.

My bro used to live in one of those.   The whole thing was mahogany.

There was someone salvaging waterlogged logs from one of the great lakes. It was logs that were lost in transit or some such. The wood was very expensive.

Huh. It looks pretty common.

Garnish Trump's political donation money. If they can go after regular people's pay checks they can certainly go after Trump's scams.

I bet a bunch of the people that stormed the Capitol are excellent woodworkers. Give them community service to help repair the damage they caused.

Grind them up and use them as cement material.

/they would be bad at that, like everything else.

They probably stole it all from Gibson Guitars in 2011 in the first place.
