  • 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.

            Oh what a treat. Years ago we went to Air Shows in Oshkosh, WI. Greatest memory was the Concorde.

            Not quite. The idiots in Maryland are keeping the kids in school until June 21. A lot of schools don’t have a/c so they will send them home early. The blue angels are here every year for graduation. In September there is something at the inner harbor and the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and another group...
