Thread: Twisty juniper wood

    Twisty juniper wood

    First time posting to this forum, looks like a nice place to be. The photo is a picure of the wood I work with, wondering if anybody else has worked with it before. I find this wood on ranches, clean the bark off, dry it, then sell it like you see in the photo or make furniture out of it.

    Welcome to the forum Bruce. A lot of us work with twisted wood, or are twisted ourselves. You'll fit right in

    Welcome to the Family, Bruce!

    That's some mighty interesting wood you've got there. I'm sure it's interesting to work with!

    Nice, never used anything THAT twisty but it sure does show of the pretty on the wood especially the white sap over the red heart wood. I think my cousin around Klamath Falls gets some pieces like that...

    Yeah, there's quite a bit of juniper in the Klamath Falls area of Oregon. I haven't done any wood hunting in that area though, I just see it when I'm driving to CA on hwy.97.

    That twisted wood looks very similar to Diamond Willow!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
