Well after looking around I decided that since most of this wood is warped along its length, I would be better off making smaller things from it. Also, I tend to get more satisfaction from smaller work, so I made a jewelry box. It can be seen in my projects list.

I really like working with this old wood. It has a lot of character to it, which makes picking out where to place the unique features of the wood pretty fun. It finishes real nice with no stain at all, too.

As I am working on sawing and sanding this wood, I find myself wondering who before me has worked this same piece, who cut the tree down, who drove the nails in it. Kind of feels like you are linked to the past through the wood.

Well I still have plenty of it left, so hopefully I will end up with many beautiful projects to come!

Great score on the wood.

Your Jewelry box looks great.

Waiting to see more projects.
