finally got a project made from that F.O.G. wood—-found on ground—-as one person put it—-actually found on beach—-No it is NOT heart cheese wood—-but that was a good idea—it is cheesy——and no it is not YOUR wood floating around the panama canel into the pacific—-but if it was it is sure a nice gift from your side of the country—-Madrone seems to be the best guesss—-got a lot of chunks outta that log—-center is still wet so it will take a few months to dry out——found a huge redwood too——inch worming it out into blocks—so far the men in black have not arrived and we have not glowed in the dark either——but we are having a blast—-retirement is so much fun

-- The price of the project can be found in the smiles of those who receive it. Some things are priceless.

I have no idea what it’s name is, but it sure is beautiful timber with stunning grain pattern.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I would bet on it being walnut – I don’t know about “stinking”, but walnut does have a smell if you burn it with a blade.

One man’s stink is another man’s pleasing pungent aroma. :-)
