So I though all you wood freaks out there might like this, although I admit it is probably a bit uneventfull for some… I thought it might interest others.
Its a chunk of wood I recieved from my mentor/ mastercabinetmaker and he has a small collection of really old wood… anyway, this piece is from a church spire from one of our old churches here in the valley. he estimates that its from around 1640 (well thats when it was built in the church). It looks like an average piece of wood, so I guess you will all just have to believe me. He has a small collection of stuff, and its cool, unfortunately I do not have any pics… maybe I could make some, but like I said unless you know where it came from its hard to tell how old it is.
It just cool to have such a piece of history in the hands. thought I would share
