Yesterday was busy – but good. Spent most of the day out and about – picnic lunch, movies, and packages in the mail – WooHoo!

Ordered a box of assorted mesquite and ebony logs from BlueStingrayBoots. I’ll be surprised if either of us don’t get a bill from the mailmans chiropractor. I sure wasn’t expecting this much booty! (oh, yeah, and some new hearing protection.)

Today is shaping up to be another hot day – so I’ll be heading off to the cinema (for the ac)... so I don’t know what’ll become of this – short term.

But all’s I got’s to say is if you need some lumber, and don’t quite know what you need or want – just ask a lumberjock, and they’ll really take care of you.

Good luck Scott. The white sapwood had lots of little critters on what I got. had to do a lot of paring.

Yeah? I saw a hole or two, so it’s all in the deep freeze to kill off any little buggers before they invade the shop/house.

Those’d be BIG pens, or enough regular ones to nearly fill up a box of diapers. That is a LOT of wood.

BSB might want to debark his wood ASAP to keep the bugs out. I know when I havest a log I like to get my drawknife and strip the bark, otherwise it will be full of worm type infestation that wreaks havoc on the wood by chewing shallow tunnels along the whole piece. Be warned that by removing the bark the process of drying out will speed up an cause surface checking in some types of wood more than others. Usually this is more noticable on the ends.

Yes I was just wanting to clue you in about the possable bugs present. I have no idea what bugs might be present in Texas and are they also present here. I don’t know.

Good looking wood! It’ll be fun to see what you turn or make out of this stuff…

Looks like a great cache there Scott. I can’t wait to see what you turn from it.

Hey leave those bugs in there! When you turn, you’ll get the ocasional splat on your face shield. Feels like your cruisin a Harley!

LOL!

Actually, those bugs go great in wood crevaces with clear epoxy. We got all the excotic bugs in s. TX. snakes, taranchulas, scorpions.
Be carefull scott!
