Yesterday we had bad weather, so I had a gap to do some work in the shop instead of being outside helping my wife erect the new pasture fence.

A job that has taken a back seat for a while was to slice up some salvaged wood for final drying and also for sending samples to a couple of guys who have requested it.

Please note that the colours in these photos are very muted, and are much richer in real life.

Firstly, Spalted Avocado


Natal Mahogany

Very Fresh Wild Plum – Unfortunately the colour deepens quite quickly as it dries.

I start with a very simple sled for these small logs, and then just run the cut face along the bandsaw fence.

Here is the Wild Plum and Avocado ready to be hung in the rafters to dry

-- I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.
