  • sycamore as carving wood

    Yuk ... am finishing up a wood spirit done in sycamore ... got a large limb from a pruned tree at the local golf course and let it sit in the woodshed for about three years. Cut it in 1/4's on the band saw and noticed that there was no splitting or checking of any kind (shoulda been my first clue). Anyway, it is nasty stuff to carve, at least with hand tools, grain goes every which way and pretty hard - is very pretty though. Don't recommend it unless your a little masochistic.

    I Cut It Six Times And It's Still Too Short!!!
