    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.

                        Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

                        Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

                        Wow! - this a stunning piece!

                        In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....

                        Workshop extension and major facelift - a work in progress
                        by jim_mex
                        Hi all -

                        Around the beginning of year I mentioned in a post that I was looking at ways to extend my existing workshop space to give me room to accommodate a midi lathe I had bought and to also allow me to undertake smallish carpentry projects in addition to scrollsaw work. Well, I finally
