  • wood for segmentation

    I am going to create JGR "elk" for my son-in-law. I plan to create it using "segmentation" technique, cutting it out of one piece of wood , 3/4" thick. I plan to stain with various shades. What wood species would you use for this project? Jim in Bend

    My choice, if I were to do it in segmentation, would be something easy to cut, shape and that takes paint well. I think it would be poplar or aspen, both of which are easily found at both Lowes and Home Depot. Pine can be difficult to cut.

      Thanks Jan but I plan to stain rather than paint. What about white birch? I was reading that is stains well.

        My choices are only suggestions. Get a piece of white birch and test it. If it takes the stain well and is reasonably easy to cut, go for it.

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
