Yup just another stock heading back to Wisconsin.
This one looks almost metallic in the sun.
I just cant figgeritout......aint they got enough kindling sticks in WI where you dont be needing to ship'em more for the stove?
Kinda purty. I'll need to commence to buying lottery tix so's I can eventually be able to afford one. Such skill. Wish I had it but it's a mite late to start a new apprenticeship.
I saw the heading and thought you got a new dog. Pretty stock! I like the color!
Now! With all your talent, how come that chair looks like it does?!?
Here’s my new guard dog:
PS: Tell your model she’s gorgeous and give her a beer. PM me your address, please. I need to send you something!
The chair has character with the vintage look.
My wife would send it in and pay for it to look like that. Over the last 2 years we’ve replaced all my new modern furniture with grannys old spare bedroom furniture with a $300 weathered paint job on them
It's never to late to learn.
I'd never dyed wood until a couple months ago.
He looks like a feisty lil guy for sure.
It's the little dogs that have the biggest heart
BTW I tell her she's beautiful everyday.
Today I walked in and said , come on I got you beer!
My house is a little backwards. The wife is feisty and the dog is a cuddle bug. He’s been here more than 3 weeks and he hasn’t barked yet. Follows me everywhere.
Every morning, I get up and make the coffee. When she walks in, I hand her her coffee, give her a kiss and tell her she’s gorgeous.
She calls me a liar and says I’m full of it!
He's your dog for sure
That is a beautiful piece of woodwork! I built a dresser out of Butternut because I love the warmth of the wood, but found it to be very soft and hard to work without allowing marks if not handled with kid gloves . I am surprised that it would make a good stock because it is softer then many other hardwoods. I have not seen the dresser for many years so I don't know if the wood remained stable. Stability would be more important in a stock then the softness of the wood, so it may make a better stock then I think.
White Walnut... juglans cinerea... great wood for carving, should you run across any. Works like walnut though if a bit softer.
I made some window screen frames out of it for a friend in Chicago, his apartment in Wrigleyville had floors of butternut. This was back in early ‘90’s, I could still find it but it took a bit of snoopery.
Now I’d prolly take a pass unless I could turn some up where I am now.
Problem is, like with American Elm, butternut’s being decimated by a fungus.
So if you can find it (it’s out there) by all means use it wisely.
Bob said he picked up a unit of it from a coffin maker in Iowa.
I did notice how much lighter stock felt in my hands compared to the maple.
I want one made from osage orange (bois d’ arc for my brothers in the south)
Dude your wife is beautiful, Lucky Bas****.
Of course your Model steps up for another exemplary display. Worthy of a trip to the next “Fest-of-Ale” near here....
Wait...what...I read every one of these posts and I don't even see a stock...
I would never, in a million years, have guessed that you were a blonde...
Its easier to hide the grey
I'll keep my eyes peeled for some big enough to make a blank out of. Probably have to laminate one. Tough stuff right there.
