« Part 34: ETSY Product Decisions Part 35 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 36: ETSY - TAXES how to do them »

WE had a 60 year old oak tree in the back yard that died – DRATS!!! Anyway we had to have it taken down because of it’s size. I was smart enough to save some branches to use on furture. I have enough for several projects. One picture shows two branches that I have cut into strips 3/8 inchs wide. NOw I need to plane and sand them to size.

The real story behind the tree is that when my daughter was about 5 or 6 we played ball under the tree in the evenings. I am sure that she will get one of the projects. Now I wonder why I did not save more of that tree. O well.

That is awesome, Jerrell! It was sad to hear the tree had to come down, but I am sure you will make some wonderful pieces with it that will fill the hearts of many. Great wood gloat! :)

Congrats on the find, but be careful what you use this for since branches will likely warp much more than trunk wood.
