    Been Cherry Pickin'

    Our church had to have a few trees taken down on the property of our future building. One just happened to be a cherry. So I pulled out my trusty chain saw and found my way over to pick up a piece or two. Not sure if it's any good or not. I'll let you be the judge.

    Some nice pieces of wood Doug. It would be nice to make something for the new church with some of it.

    Doug, based on the pics it looks pretty bad to me. I think you should send me a couple of the bigger chunks so I can check it out more carefully. Of course, I'll have to peel away the surface of the logs a little bit at a time, but I've got the specialized tools necessary for such an analysis.

    It's a good thing we have a properly equipped expert in our midst.

    Hey, hey, hey I agree with Vaughn. What you don't send to him send to me and I will do several checks to see if it is good for turning. I have the tools and equipment to do this with much expetise.

    Congrats on a nice haul.

    I appreciate the concern that many of you seem to have. I do have a piece of equipment that will peal the layers away pretty well. The inspection process does take time and energy. I'll try to let you know what I find along the process. 8-)

    You could (should?) make a nice plaque or cross or something to put in the new church. Be a nice gesture, IMHO.
