While falling trees high in the rockies a few weeks ago, I saved a wedge from the first tree. I always inspect the wedge before finishing the fall, to see if any rot has begun in the beetle kill lodgepoles. The wedges always seem neat to look at, but not very useful. Anyway I threw it in the truck and brought it home to think about it. I’m having a booth at a trade show next weekend and needed something to hold my cards, so I cut a slot in the wedge and branded it. This is a good example to show folks what a cross section of the tree looks like after the beetles stain the sapwood.

really nice way to display your cards, and using the wood that you use to make your furniture, and a nice slab of wood, how perfect is that…nice wood burn of your logo also…

Nice presentation. I would sure like to get a hold of some of that BK Pine. That is cool looking stuff.

Excellent!

Always anxious to see the wedge. Tells a lot about the tree.

Nice – never even gave wedges a thought as far as this type of display is concerned. Got plenty of them, that’s for sure. Did you cut the groove with your radial arm saw? Still have that planer for you.

Thanks for posting.

A very professional statement. It caused you to think about your medium. Nifty Logo. :-)

I cut the groove on the tablesaw. The Radial arm saw would have been easier, but mine is out of order at the moment.
