First off I want to thank all the wonderful supportative people checking out my work . You folks are the ones that made me decide to share my thoughts and projects . That and I realized not many people do my style of crazy projects . There are some and some of them are way better then me . But if I can do it , I’m betting you can too and probably better .
Second , I’m dyslexic so there will be mispellings and words out of order and stuff like that . Unless you are youself you don’t understand whats it’s like and everyone who is expiernces it differently . No big deal , just a warning for anyone reading .
Now why is it heavy and what is it ? It started out as a 6 and 1/2 foot long piece of white oak from a fence row . A really old fence row . I was at Heacock Lumber in PA a few years ago and I saw this huge piece of sqaured off oak while getting some ash for paddles . So like any woodworker that sees a piece of oak 78” x 26” x 20” I think to myself ” I could make a medieval dugout chest with that ” . So I just had to ask even though I was sure it would be too expensive for me . It turns out that it has all kinds of metal in it from the metal fence according to there metal detector . It was green and loaded with water and super heavy . It took a huge loader to drop it in the back of my little ford ranger ” long bed ” . If anyone cares to comment I’ll write more .
