    excellent wood haul

    LOML and I were at the local transfer station this morning, recycling brush, yard waste, paper, etc. when I saw some spalted maple in the pile of wood waste. I picked up 4 pieces, each about 20-30#.

    Ben will get 3 to turn, but I took one to mill some boards. I know, not quite neandering, but the projects will be. Anyway, here are pics, and you can see a pair of bookmatched panels. Each piece is 6" wide, the max capacity of my old PM bandsaw.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Ooh, that's nice-looking stuff. Looking forward to seeing what you and Ben come up with from those pieces.

    In our county that little action could get you arrested, fined, and a little court time!

    Nice haul, BTW.

    Nice Haul!
    Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Yep. Signs posted all over. NO PICKING!
    You can bring stuff in, but you can't take it out.
