I was given some pieces of Birch (I think) limbs that we about 3” diameter and 1/4 inch thick. I am planning a craft show on Oct. 1st so I’m busy working on different projects and ideas. Here is one of the first pieces I finished utilizing the limb pieces. I find this wook very easy to scroll and need little sanding – if I am careful.

What do you think?

I went to the local Rockler store to try and purchase some wood like this thinking it was birch. Well as the three Rockler guys stood around looking at the wood not really knowing what it was and a customer walked over and said it was yaupon holly. He told me which wood to choose to be the same and said, “I have a limb of that in my truck if you want it”. Also they had wooden boards, random lenghts and widths, on sale for a $1.00. Turned out to be a really great day at the Rockler store.
