WOW!!! Cook Woods in Oregon recently had a sale, a kinda reverse auction. Prices kept getting lower by the day. By the end of the week all the good stuff had been bought. Being the “Wood Ho” that I am I ordered several pieces of plain Myrtle. I have never worked with Myrtle so at these prices why not try some. They came in quickly and as I thought, they were pretty plain but I can use them for accent or contrast pieces. So this morning I re sawed a piece in half and look what jumped out of the middle when run through the planer. WOW, was I surprised and happy. This is a SPW (Special Purpose Wood). Don’t know what I am gonna do with it. Boxes, box tops, drawer fronts and that kind of projects come to mind. Tell me what you think and send me some ideas, this wood is too special to waste.
-- I am going to go stand outside so if anyone asks about me, tell them I'M OUTSTANDING!
