So long 2013 and hello 14.
A friend called and asked if I was intrested in some wood with a dark center and light sapwood.
Hmmmm….. Let’s think about this for a millisecond. YES!
He called it mimosa wood.

If the rest of the year is anything like the start it’s going to be a fun year.

Hopefully your year will be the same.
God bless you all.

Mimosa is a pretty tree… and it looks to be a pretty wood. Thanks again Jim for the box of wood you sent…. excited to be taking it to the shop today. Hippie You Near.
