Keep your eyes open ladies and gents, you never know where and when an unparalleled wood treasure will wash up on you desert ile. I was recently given a couple of birtch branches by a retired arbidder. Didn’t think much of them. I figured I’d save them for a project that I needed a nice white stick for. One day I walked by them in my shop and I saw that the cut off of a small branches had dark inky lines spiderwebbing through it. I nearly wet myself! I propty set to work for the next couple of hours to mill out the branches. Sure enough they were full of some of the most beautifully spalting that I have ever seen. Get yourselves a 3/4” bandsaw blade and start milling out your “Yard Debris” and you “Firewood”. There is some great stuff out there if you don’t mind a treasure hunt!
