    a little eye candy

    I sold some red oak and don't you know I had to move a stack to get to it and this is what was on top. It's quartersawn red oak I cut awhile ago. This was straight through the pith so I'll have to rip the pith out when I decide to use it.

    Oh the pith just wreaks that board, I think you should send it straight to me, I'll get rid of it for you.....

ID:	67989 I have around 50 bd/ft of the quartered stuff and about 100 bd/ft rift sawn. I've got the butt log still yet to saw. It's an 8 footer by about 30 inches at the small end. I'm going to quarter it also.

    Yikes! those ugly patches on that board. Shipping it to Stu will cost you a bundle. Best if you send it to me and I will properly dispose it.
