  • Wood Properties

    Every once in awhile I see a post asking about the workability of certain wood species. I'm new to woodworking and would like the same answers. I found a site that has just that kind of info. Interested in the properties of Hickory? You'll find it at this site.

        Got it too. Looks like a good reference. Missing Bubinga, though, I noticed.

          Thats a good one. Remember, is your friend! Type the name of the wood and lumber, hit enter and BAM... For example, Bubinga lumber gets you to:

            Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

            What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

            And now for the questions
            by old fa_t
            I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

            Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

            BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
