    hidden treasures

    While moving stuff around to clean up the shop after my mini-flood, I found a box with some wood pieces in it. I really don't remember the box at all but the contents were some really delicious pieces of spalted dunno wood. The label said it was sent to me by Chuck Thoits in December of '08. Thanks, Chuck, sorry it got buried and not used. Guarantee, it will be soon.
    Actually, it may be fortuitous good fortune it got buried until now. This wood is a perfect candidate for stabilizing. I'll cut the big pieces into pen blanks and stable it all. Certainly should make some nice looking pens.

    Thanks.
    We had a minor flood this week. When I get the shop, and adjacent rooms, cleaned and dried out I may be able to get back to actually doing something I enjoy in there.

    You guys clean your shop... is that allowed???

    I'm having an art club meeting in my shop next month... think I'm going to have to get in there with some kind of blower to get all the dust out... it'll probably look a tornado when I get all that dust stirred up


    That's a great find there Frank... definitely beautiful wood.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
