very small time in all reality
« on: August 10, 2014, 09:30:31 PM »
 I need to say, my beloved wife has been in education for 24 years, and I have had several tasks to accomplish with no regrets.  When she asked for a thin board for a road sign I thought no problem.  I came up with this,

A pretty thin board, 1/8", 4" wide, syp. 



Although these were very nice, they were to heavy. What she needed was veneer,  I had one on the wall, I had saved after trying to saw out some for  chair maker, thin as a dime, faded, but really flat and straight.  I grabbed it and she said " Perfect!"  I could not believe it,  I have looked at it for over two years between to purling's, I just liked it, you know,  anyway, battery gave way,so a pick is coming on this one,   just  wanted to share my lil wood working expertise :D
I have to add, this has been in the office, if you call it that, for over a month, no movement whatsoever.  Just amazing,  I wish framing lumber would behave so good,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

David, the first thing that came to mind when I saw these pictures was venetian blinds. :D You better be careful about storing wood in the house, the little lady will surely find a use for it.
Have a great day.

I have found that really thin strips behave better than one would think. I think it's because they dry out before they have time to warp.

Just don't try it with persimmon.  They could teach a topology course with one board.
I am in the pink when sawing cedar.
