So a few weeks ago I stopped by a home site and picked up a small portion of stump. I opened it up on the bandsaw and it was wonderfully figured. There was a sizeable crotch there as well, but I was not big enough to get it into the truck. Anyway, that evening I thought that I wanted to keep my eyes open for another piece. The next evening, I was picking up my kids from the sitter and to my suprise, there was a crotch log sitting in the middle of North Oak Trafficway…..I stopped and picked it up. It has been sitting in my garage drying ever since. Now for the odd part (other than finding a nice log on the median of a busy street that is), about three days ago, I did an image search for “osage orange” and decided that I needed to buy a piece to make a turkey call. While driving to my office yesterday, I stopped at an intersection and noticed another log sitting on top of a short retaining wall. I turned around and picked it up…...get ready for it…....osage orange! I think I must be part Jedi, cause the last 2 times I thought about looking for a certain type of log, I found one laying on the road. Just kinda odd I thought…...maybe I should think about finding MONEY!!!!!!
