Not really, more of a cockroacher/attack his own taler, still a youngun. I had mice before he came, he seemed oblivious while they masqueraded in the kitchen, but they noticed him and obviously decided it was risky, so they have cleared off.

I just snapped the pic in the shop the other day, I liked it, and thought I’d upload, as it has some wood in it :)

cat’s are very good at helping out in the workshop…..particularly the ones with big fluffy tails that seem to have a radar for wet paint….

We used to have a couple that were at home in the house and the shop. They both would sleep on the bench while I worked. Often, when I was at the TS, one or the other would leap from the bench and land on my shoulder to lick my ear.
Great mousers but, sadly no match for owls.

Cute cat for sure and im a dog guy but i do think that i could use one around the place for mice.

Nomad – speaking of dogwoods the Dept of Environmental Protection here in Connecticut has just put out and alert for dogwoods. Apparently they have some sort of incurable fungus attacking them. For any of you out there with dogwoods keep you eyes open … heres the link …,0,6863907.story (edit scratch that … its boxwoods lol)

He’s at it again…

... I think he’s getting a habit.

I hope he doesn’t get upset with me when I break it to him that this 200 bd ft of Primavera isn’t in fact a gift for him to covet and I will be chopping it all up and milling it into boring floorboards. (and getting very bored at it I guess but will pay some bills)

The sniff test for quality…

There are some nicely figured boards, shame really as that just means tearout in the planer and more work to get it surfaced, and I’ll be wanting to keep all the nice boards back for something else..

I did grab the two long roughly 4×4 chunks on the right side for myself. They are what people here refer to as “Primavera Negra” or Black Primavera which seems to me to be spalted, possibly from older trees which stood dead a while as it’s often wormy, as are these pieces. Has some amazing colur with chestnut brown and pink streaks going through the very hard white wood which has grain highlighted with black lines.
Here’s a pic of some clamp handle blanks I cut from it.
