  • Lost a great friend the other day

    Sitka was a wolf hybrid that came from Alaska (Sitka). She lived with us for 19 great years. She loved and raised many younger dogs and she love children as well...always setting down and allowing kids to pet her. For the past 6 months, my wife would fix a special meal for her every day and we would hand feed her...she had lost most teeth on one side of her mouth, so you would feed her on one side and move the bowl around to the other side and catch what fell out, and then start all over. She would always lay in the kitchen so you would have to step over her....yes, we are still stepping over her.... She is over the rainbow playing with all her friends awaiting for us to join her one day....she will be missed.

    RIP sweet Sitka. Be sure to have a romp with my Ripper, Snowball, Lil Bro and Teddy, who are at the Bridge waiting.

        Sorry to hear of your loss. Sitka sounds like she was quite the dog.

        Our DD-cat just passed a few weeks ago at 16. She'll give Sitka a good chase up in the rainbows.

        If you need or want somebody to talk to about this there's a good support chat at (like our chat it requires Java so I can't get in, but my wife's been a regular)

              I'm so sorry your Sitka has gone to the bridge. You will have a ghost at your heels for a long time.

                          19 years is a long time to have a faithful companion by your side and she will be truly but fondly missed.

                              From Alaska to Hawaii, what a transition !
                              Sorry to hear of your loss, I know how tough it is to take the loss of a beloved pet. Like people, there is no replacement possible.

                                This site should be on every woodworkers computer. As has been said the first image is Wenge....

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
