This may or may not be a precursor to a pretty sweet wood gloat.
The latest demo job we have taken on was in a church dating from 1903. My lead supervisor has managed to salvage me some, what we believei s, chestnut. I just ran through the hobbitt house pictures and it seems awfully close to the pics shown there, but i was curious what are the ways to identify american chestnut?
Is it in the pores, in the rays, in the weight of the material?
Pics coming this evening !!
