Getting me out of the house only happens one day a week…and four hours at that. Caring for an elderly parent keeps me from circulating. Today during my four hour stretch, I drove through one of the old neighborhoods in Rapid City…and noticed….noticed…a large pile of wood down by a house. Stopping by, then knocking on the door, I was greeted by a nice lady who lost several trees during a recent storm…a cedar and a linden. A Linden!!! Score! I took way too much of it because I just don’t get the chance to do alot in my shop even now. And a resaw jig is one of my next projects for my bandsaw. But I consider getting the wood a completed project…now to coat the ends(it was taken taken down 3 weeks ago and there’s a little checking going on now.) Linden is such a beautiful warm yellowish wood. I’m excited to get it resawn…and I have way too much of it added to the apple, American Elm and maple I already have….though I’m certain there will be checking, etc, down the road…but I should get some nice projects out of it. I’ve wanted all my nice projects to be from wood grown in South Dakota…and this adds alot to my collection.
