I saw pine planters for sale at the greenhouse the other day that ranged from $5 to $9 and they were made from what I would use for stickers.  I need to get a market like that!
If I never saw another board I will at least die happy having spent the last few years working with my dad!

Those cookies doubled in price at least twice (probably three times) after they left the mill.  Still, that would be $3.25 at the mill.  Yeh, I'd do it for that.  Just need a good way to clamp them.

 The easy way to make those is with a crooked log, leave the crooked end stick up and cut.   Steve

Cutting on the bias that way is how they keep them from cracking like a cookie will. Technically, they are not a cookie. There used to be a plaque factory in Frederick Michigan that made all the plaques for the little tourist trap places in Northern Michigan. You could go over there and get a car trunk load of cracked white pine ones for a buck to use for campfires.

I was wondering about that Jeff - how they kept from cracking.  I cut about 10 cookies last summer and only 2 survived the drying process without turning into PacMan :)
I thought it might have something to do with a diagonal cut (i assume that's what you mean by bias?).   I'll have to give that a shot next time i have something to cut up.

Now to the untrained eye that's an overpriced wood cookie.

But if you call it a natural ecofriendly Dutch cheeseboard  ;D

It's worth at least $30  :D

Ha!   I was too lazy to track it down online :)  That's great.

Funny, under the "Usage" tab it says "Dishwasher : yes", but in the care tips it says no dishwasher.  I don't imagine that thing would do well in a trip through the pots-and-pans cycle  :D

Also like "Material : Bark"   :)

I was looking for house warming gift ideas when i came across this thing.  I just picked up some beer and wine instead   8)

Out of curiosity, what is the procedure for cutting on the bias? I have an idea in my head, but would like to know how it is actually done.  Also drying procedures for such?

Rather than cutting straight across the log for a cookie, you cut on a steep angle.  I've done it on my lt30 with short logs and sticking one end down in the frame and securing it so it would not move.

Yup, that's the trick. According to the web page they are ~17" long, but only 7 or 8" wide. So it's an 8" "log" that's sliced on a shallow angle. Then you use a wood that's not prone to checking, I think those a Ash, but something like Cedar would probably work well too.

The discs might tend to warp a bit as they dried, but you sort that out with a sander once it's dried and stable.

Ovals are a LOT less prone to cracking. The steeper the angle, the more it starts to behave like a board as it dries. It may cup or twist from the drying stresses, but you can fix this later.  The wood can move a bit, without tearing itself apart like a round cookie usually does.

Species of wood makes a big difference too.

What about soaking them in denatured alcohol? Doesn't that help them from cracking?
