    Interesting. I don't see many sin-thetiks in there. That black board they are setting looks curious. Boggy oak?

    Well frank there are a few resin blanks in the mix. 7-10 if my memory isn't totally shot. I just tried out casting hornet nest in alumilite. I went with yellow and black resin- go figure. I threw in one of those. It is strictly turn at your own risk, there might be a few holes in it. I shot a big bald face hornet nest out of a tree yesterday so I am chomping at the bit to do some more of those casts. Been learning the worthless wood cast thing also. I have lots of burls and ant wood, and weird stuff that grows in trees. It will be interesting to see what actually looks good. I even have some prickley pear cactus skeletons to mess with.

    The picture was shot laying on a painted piano bench that came with a grand piano that I just bought. The durn thing will dominate space in the shop until I get it re-finished. Never turned bog oak. Nor she-oak for that matter, that looks right pretty.

    I ended up with some 3" squares of 4/4 Merlau black walnut today. Are these usable as blanks, and if so will folks here mind if I not cut them smaller?

    Those would work as good pendant or stopper blanks Mark. I can't speak for all but I wouldn't mind finding them in the box. And if some one wanted they could cut them down.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    HEY - I got a box in the mail the other day.

    Sorry - but I have been flat out busy.

    I forgot to take pics - but I took out some fine specimins and added in some of my private stock.

    The box is now on its way to another member.

    Man - I feel like I really blew it by not taking pics. That is sooo not like me.

    Anyway - it's in transit.
