« Part 9: Leopard Wood this time.. Part 10 of Wood Gloat series Part 11: Another Visit by Keith.. »

This afternoon I received a call from Ken … LJ kenscraft…. letting me know he had been running late on Xmas Eve …. so he was now delivering my belated Xmas Gift…almost 150 Board Feet of Camphor Laurel … All the boards are DAR… full one inch thick dressed… from 8 inches to 14 inches wide…. from 2 and 1/2 feet to nearly 5 feet long… 38 of them… and 32 precut cutting boards…. Spent a few minutes this afternoon making a couple of boards from the precut pieces…did not turn out to bad at all..

Also glued up some blanks for some large Lazy Larrys… similar to this..

This is indeed a wonderful Christmas present. Just the wood alone would have been a great gift but getting it fully dressed is “going way beyond the call of duty”. I just hope you have someplace to store all this lumber. :)

Now I see where the board in the “PRojects’ section came from.
That is mighty nice wood. I can see a ton of cutting boards being made from those!

I have must of be bad this year, but instead of coal and things being as tough as they say, I got wood. You know like Padauk,Cocobolo,and Olivewood.I think my woodturning son squealed on me.
Larry I would like drive by and check out your X-mas gift, but somehow I don’t think that would work.
