    What? Not enough room in the trunk when you saw it?

    I was in 'stealth' mode, and the car was a couple of blocks away. Yes I could have gone back, but I was pressed for time. I'll be in the neighborhood again tomorrow, we'll see if syracuse's DPW crew has picked it up yet.



    and though it might not look it, that neighborhood is not the nicest one I've visited... so I'm not going to make a midnight run

    WHEw

    My back sure wishes the DPW had made its rounds already... but I am now the proud scrounger of two of those chunks of Willow. Judging by the leaves, and the branches in the pile, that's what it looks like.

    Funny thing, they didn't look that big on the curb, but I could only fit two of the three hunks in the car. I snagged the crotch and one of the other pieces. PHotos soon, I'm uploading as I type this.


    I think I'll go pick up some oops paint on the way home so I can seal the ends.

    Is this like some sort of pledging prank... the newbie turner has to go forage for turning stock as part of his initiation?

    Mark,
    I thought Liz liked that color and you were going to use it in the house?

    Good score....I didn't think you had a lathe yet Ned? Did I miss a gloat, or are you just preparing for the future?

    Hi my name is Ned and I'm a wood Hoarder...

    -crowd- *Hi ned*


    No lathe as yet, but Mark has one, and he has graciously let me start turning on his, so could't pass these up.. And It is #2 on my tool aquisition list... right after a jointer, and Just before a bandsaw.

    Nice haul Ned. Yep won't be long now. He'll do some turning and then Kaiti bar the door. Ned will be flying down to get his lathe.

    Ned, forget about the jointer....once you spend more time on Mark's lathe you won't ever need it! You know you have already given into the vortex...you already are looking at logs differently. Watch out for the slippery slope!
