Now that it isn’t 40 degrees and hailing I had more energy to do some work done in the shop today. I tried out a new splitting technique on one of my black locust logs and managed to get about 4 planks from it. I used my skilsaw to cut along the split line so the wood doesnt go haywire as easily. It made 4 hours of torture take 30 minutes instead. These planks will become a table top for some steel legs i nabbed on craigslist.
For those that dont live here seattle doesn’t really have spring. It is usually 40 degrees until mid june when it instantly flips over to 70-80 and sunny. Late april to early may is what I call the mood swing season because over the course of a single day you can experience sun/ rain/snow/ hail/ and lightning. We have a phrase here “if you don’t like the weather just wait an hour”
