Blake22, I'll be passing your way and digging into one of Jimmy's burgers and some 10 layer cake next week.

Yup.  Every time I go past.  Even had to drive up there from ocala to pick up a stranded trucker one time.  He got to buy me a bacon cheeseburger before we headed back.

@Blake22

I see you live in Madison. I lived in Day when I was eleven and twelve, then after the school burned down we moved to the other side of the county, to the east of Mayo on US 27...

Blake, Jeff doesn't purge members who have posted before.  You don't get purged for not being able to post pics either, just laffed at a lot. ;D :snowball:

The clay pots used to collect pitch were referred to as Herty Cups.  They were developed by Charles Herty.

If I'd have known that 2 years ago, I could have exclaimed to my friends on the FL trail, Hey look, it's a Herty Cup!

Seriously though, I am going to add that to my mostly useless-make myself look smart around a select few Floridians- store of knowledge.

 I took these pics in the Museum at the home of a friend of mine, Steve Melton, who lives in Trilby, Fl.  He has a lot of really cool stuff, some of which used to belong to my Great Grandfather (cane grinder and various railroad tools).  The catface which is from an old longleaf pine, the tins, Herty cups and the hacks which were used to create the catfaces are pictured.

Surprised to se so many replies under 'cat face' , that would be a knot scar that is a grading defect on a hardwood log.                          So there is another cat face found in the southern pine woods, very interesting.

The "catface" posted by Caveman is a turpentine scar.  Trees were deliberately injured to collect turpentine.

The cut marks to stimulate resin flow in the old longleaf pines resembled a cat’s face.

The horizontal metal piece in the first post is to give a horse something to brush your leg against. Makes a nasty wound.
