I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never.
A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.
there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone had already cut out a section of it so I took it home.
yeah yeah, It looks pretty small but its exiting for me
I dont have a bandsaw (yet, very soon) so I took it over to a freinds house and cut it up on his.
the best boards
the smaller boards
the real small boards
These boards were quater sawn so the boards aren’t very wide. Next time I’ll probly flat saw them to get wider boards.
the turning blanks
there were more but they mysterously dissapeared…(couldn’t wait for them to dry)
the bowl blank
well, thats one out of the way. as soon as I get my bandsaw I’ll move on to THESE
still not sure what the wood is but I’ll post a forum topic with pics of the wood, bark and leaves. If anyone’s got any ideas feel free to tell.
