  • Next wood review

    Hey everyone,
    I did the first wood review on poplar...and for the holiday issue, I'd like to review something seasonal...but the only wood I can think of is Holly or Pine. Holly is out of my budget right now, and I'm not ready to do pine...any thoughts?

    I was thinking Oak...Yule Log...but that is a bit of a stretch...

    Fir, Spruce, - gosh, most of the conifers have some connection to Christmas. How about cedar? There are several varieties, but any of them might be OK and not too expensive. If you used the aromatic kind, your work area might be moth - less. (or smell like a clean hamster's cage!) I think you could stretch the yule-log concept to cover just about any native wood - there must have been a time when almost anything served in that capacity. Donch'a just hate it when there are too many choices?

      hard to beat Sandy's suggestions.

      Maybe stretching things to the max..... cut a partridge out of a pear tree.

          That is a stroke of genius!

          I love the idea of a partridge in a Pear tree.

          It's got my vote.

            Well friends quite a week here on the prairie.
            Long back story, but our son was adamant we get a fast response COVID test last Saturday, so we could attend an outdoor gathering of his girlfrigirlfriend's family. About an hour into the ATV and dirt bike riding, he got off the 4-wheeler and dropped...

            Earlier, I posted a question on where to get them. Someone suggested Amazon and that is where I got them.
