I went to a birthday party for my granddaughter at her other grand parents house today. The other granddad has a shop but dosn’t do much wood working any more. But he had a pile of wood and gave me these 3 boards 2 are 1”x11 1/2”x 10’ the other one is 1”x7 3/4”x 8’6”. They are Florida Maple and have been air drying for about 4 years. I don’t know what I am going to do with them but I will figure out some thing I am sure.

-- My theroy in wood working will be. If I'm not enjoying doing it i won't do it.

Better to have wood without projects than projects without wood, projects will find you ;-)
