Never Know What You Will Find
« on: February 14, 2020, 09:10:51 AM »
When you open a log you never know what you will find.  This red cedar slab was given to me as a Christmas gift.  It has a unique figure.  Pay attention to the bark edge in the lower right hand corner.





What is to be found inside?  Flipped over....





Anybody see a duck there???......I thought it was pretty neat.

Ooh forum ink blot testing 8)...I see the duck paddling on a lake with small waves and whispy clouds in the sky  while looking over my toes reclined in a beach chair drinking a fruity drink with the little umbrella in it......
Confession ....This might have to do with the below zero wind chill this morning and the fact it is February. I do see a duck and it's a nice slab.

   I further identified the species of the figure as a "Wood Duck". :D

   Nice find.

Reminds me of when I sawed Red Cedar and it felt like I was being watched... :o


Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Yes, yes, seeing is believing.  The duck looks like it has just landed on the water to me, wings still out a bit. And I wouldn't mess with the guy staring at you. Doesn't look friendly.

That's one of my customers!. I burn a lot of stuff like that unless it is really sound, not that I want to, just no place to store it until the right person comes around. The other problem is that too much entertainment results and no work gets done. I do have some 2x erc. that is fiddle back put away, only time I 've seen that.
