I posted this same item in an old post about birches by Don Butler, and thought it was worth reproducing as a blog item. The picture has been used in a very old blog item here before….............. Moose like birch too….........a picture from my front porch…... ....if you look closely, you will see the peeling bark on this birch, which is pretty typical. Don Butler had posted a picture of a birch that was really exfoliating its bark and wondered what was going on. ...
This slab of W redcedar has been laying around in my barn for years. I finnaly decided to use it for something. I freehanded the drawing from a picture of a largemouth on Googleimages. Then I routed the details in with my craftsman 2hp plunge router.. More to come!

In this episode I start working on the top part of the chest.
Today we moved to Jackson Hole. To Snake River Ranch to be exact. I’m sitting here at my new laptop and the first bookmark I put in was LJ. We are residing in the cook house/dining hall. I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a more scenic location. The Tetons on one side and the Snake River on the other. It will be even prettier when the snow is gone. We got into quite a snow storm on our way in today and more coming down now. We have wireless here so I’ll be on here bother...
