I went to a wedding reception for my wife’s friend at her work tonight. Sitting around a fire talking to this guy and lo and behold he is a lumberjack of sorts. He cuts down trees for a living and said that he would keep his eyes open for some interesting pieces of wood for me. He said that when he finds them he will call me and arrange to pick them up. he said the sizes would be minimum 4 inches wide and around 4ft long. Man I am so geeked about this. I still plan to use my usual resources. I told him that I am always looking for new resources for wood. Now I just need to set aside a place to air dry the wood. Or see if I could use someone’s kiln. This should be an interesting venture.
My wife said that a woodworker could always find someone to talk wood with. I just laughed. But I do have to agree with her.
