bbc…the emerald ash borer problem seems to be spreading despite restrictions on moving firewood and lumber. bye bye to baseball bats at this rate. hate to see you using ash for trim since I think it lends itself to some “interesting” grain patterns.

I have an old beam supposedly from chestnut…it’s from a refurb farm house in NY so it’s old…I’m sure any bugs are long gone and I intend to get it sawed up someday. And I hope it has some of the worm holes/tracks that make old lumber so interesting to look at (I had a twisted/checked cherry beam from the same house that I managed to get enough wood from to build a small table).
