    Anyone know what kind of bone this is. We were guessing the ham was missing.
    I think this is going to be part of my new cane. Ineeded something heavy and strong to absorb recoil.

      I think it is a femur bone probably from a bovine, (cow or bull), or Tyrannusaurus Rex as Normded said. Mastadons were also common in your area when I was a kid. Just looking at the picture makes me "bone tired."

                  Hey Rob - I'd guess at a femur of a cow.
                  Spot any three legged moocows around your place?

                  As to needing something to absorb the recoil. You could try steeping the bone in vinegar for a few days. With a bit of luck this will dissolve out all the calcium and leave you with a rubbery bone! I kid not, it works with chicken legs - LOL!

                    Nope don't need a soft one. The cane I'm building will have a few handy "items" built in for the entertainment people that think they've found a soft target. I don't even have to fake my limp to get their attention anymore. Ahhhh life is pickin' up. I love idiots.

                        I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                        Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                        We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
