  • is there a source for hardwood rounds

    Like the basswood rounds only in hardwood?
    I saw some projects I'd like to make out of hardwood rounds.
    I wish I could find an old fallen tree in the woods and get someone to cut me some rounds off of it......
    is it possible to do that and would it be suitable to make projects out of?

    Yes you can cut rounds yourself, but remember that you are dealing with end grain.

      Catlyn, tell me the dimensions that you are looking for.... Are you talking stock like bowl blanks, or more like dowels?

        I believe she is referring to the rounds you can get at some craft stores that are 5-6 inches around and about 1 " thick sometimes with the bark still attached.

        If you have some cut off a branch or a tree you will need to let them cure for about a year and be sure you treat them so they do not check/crack. If the limb is really dry you may not have to cure it for quite as long.

            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)

            Totally agree for one project. I think that this is where my ADHD brain helps. I usually end up with numerous project waiting finish. When the weather is right I take them outside and spray. The water based poly is nice because cleanup is little more than running warm water through the spray un...
