Some folks are building a home around the corner from me, and knocked down a few trees in the process. I picked up a medium sized crotch and bandsawed it open today. As long as it dosen’t check too bad, I will make this into a small clock for my daughter. Not sure what type of wood it is, but the colors and figure are really nice. I think looking for pieces of wood laying around and sending them through the saw may have just become a new hobby of mine.
