Two years ago I bartered for three BIG logs from a sycamore that blew down in a storm. In return, I cut the rest of the tree into firewood. As a gesture of thanks, I made the owners an end grain cutting board, which surprised and pleased them greatly.
I got a call yesterday from that same person, who now has some walnut he was given for firewood. He asked me if I wanted any, and when I examined it, I found four pieces of crotch like this:
His sycamore is in its second year of air drying in my cousin’s barn, and soon it will be ready to use. He’s going to get a small hanging cabinet of sycamore, maybe with walnut crotch door panels.
It pays to make friends.
