  • 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.

            Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

            I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

            Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
