Ever since I got my new band saw this year I’ve been meaning to investigate some of the oak firewood that’s been piled up for a couple years now. So a couple weeks ago I grabbed a decent size piece and headed to the shop. It’s like unwrapping a Christmas gift when you start cutting it open to reveal the beauty held within. I cleaned all the bark off with a chisel and used the waste from the drawer to make the drawer pull. Sanded to 400 grit and multiple coats of spray poly. The downside is now that the wife has seen it she wants me to cut open every other piece of firewood out there. If the rest of it looks like this, I won’t argue.
