So I normally only post actual projects, but I really got a kick out of the fact that I didn’t screw this up. I got a hold of a tulipwood log, cut it in half, then jointed the exposed side. Took that flat side against my resaw fence and got 4 nice 4/4 pieces about 38” long and 6-7” wide. Definitely will make a nice sculpted box at some point!

That’s some sweet looking wood. Before you know it you will be judging every tree by the lumber in it.

That is some beautiful wood you got there!!!!!
I really like working with Tulip Wood, I posted a small box here on LJ’s awhile back made of it. I used Bloodwood as a top, came out really nice.

Can’t wait to see the project you make with this…..
