Cleaning up a pile from an old garage tear down. A 2×8 give me a few boards that I don’t know which tree it came from:

A reddish pink, with a few white areas. That black streak is from the weathered (and wet) outside surface. Stuff tends to burn on the saw. Not a pine, way too hard for that.

Here is the underside of a panel I am gluing up. The “top” side is almost all red in colour. As for those rafters in the pile…QSWO! Yep, and all I have to do is de-nail them. A look at a few pieces:

Handles were made with a Forstner bit, and bandsawn to shape on the outside. Still have to round-over the edges. Parts are just sitting there, no assembly as of yet.

Saw is as clean as it gets, anymore. IF it was “spotless”, it means I ain’t been there working on it.

as for that “pink” wood…

I bet that saw has seen some very nice pieces being made. Way to go! I love that pink wood, too.

Just back in from milling a few more boards. This time it was a few more rafters:

Ugly, ain’t it? And now and after clean up shot:

And, an end grain shot:

These seem to be an Oak or an Ash, maybe? These will be made into another Stove Sitter Tray, #3. The rafters were a FULL 2” thick, by 4-3/4” wide. Trying to get them down to 2” wide, by 1” thick. Got a ways to go.
