Ya know being an Elm all those twists just might twist again as the lumber dried and come out pancake flat.

About like the old cartoon "The tree only has one knot", and the whole tree is tied in a knot. ;D
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

I'm thinking benches. Build a pair to sit around a firepit or place at the base of a big shade tree facing outward.


Beats the heck out of the best set I was ever able to build and I had to add extra legs on the curved back area to keep them from tipping over when I sat on them.

OK, I reckon that is the town that you can see South of Hwy 50 before you get to the prisons.  Never been there.

   Looks like even the trees in Colorado have been inhaling too much smoke from that whacky weed they grow and legalized out there. :D
