Do you think this will qualify as a wood project now that I made a bench out of the sinker cypress my friend and I pulled from the river near my house. It is just as complicated as some of the projects on here, because getting most of my wood this way as opposed to going down to the home improvement store is a project in itself.

If you can “take a load off” and sit on it, then I say it qualifies as a project.
Plus hey, it’s portable! LOL
That sure is some pretty wood, and the price is right too.

I do not know if they will consider that a project or not.But I really like looking at the pictures of different kinds of wood.And you did cut the wood with a saw.And i am sure that you have a lot of time in getting it to that point.And i also really like the price of the wood

Nice looking piece of sinker cypress. I went with my Dad and Uncle years ago to get a sinker cypress log and I can definitely agree that it is alot, and I do mean alot of work..

ha, I have to say at first I was wondering why a board was a project, until I saw how much work it took to get that board. Nice wood, what a find!

One of my favorite shows to watch, they are very determined and I hear the pay off is good also.

Looks like a great project to me! I hope you know that gators use sinker logs as bait…

Do appreciate your approach to wood. Looked at several of your projects. I’d put this large piece of time investment into the develop[ment catagory?

Keep on! You have talent. And a sense of humor?
