I thought this was pretty……well just pretty.

Paul and I have been building something which I will show later on.

But while getting the tools up today, I noticed the bright sunshine coming through the knot holes in my lap siding. Pretty cool and Woodmizer ORANGE to boot!  :)

I liked 4 x 8 when I built mine.  Plenty of room for the boys to crash while I was propped in a corner.

We saw something like that with light coming through some thin just cut red oak when we trued up the cut after we changed blades. It seems like the wood got less translucent as it dried out. I wonder if you could bring it back with oil. ??? ::)
