    it didn't happen, so no pics

    While at the dump taking care of some brush, a recently storm felled tree was present in the form of chopped up bits 6" to 12" long. As I pulled up I said to my wife, "Look at all those bowl blanks." Her reply was less than enthusiastic, "You are not going to take wood home from the dump!" with associated threats of a complete lack of marital bliss.

    Not sure exactly what species it was, maybe a maple of some sort as it was a light colored hardwood. No leafy parts were attached to any of the blank sized bits.

    Our dump does not allow picking. They like to save it all for themselves.

    So . . . . she was giving you the OK to get what you need at the lumber yard?
