Prospecting and Process
Big Bear of a Locust Log
Black Walnut: Stock Preparation
Wide Black-Walnut stickered and acclimating since September
Flattening with a router and jig
Cutting to over-length (with a badly neglected Diston. I sharpened and set the teeth and she cuts quick and true, though in need of a polish and new handle).
Acclimating once again and awaiting final dimensioning.
Oak, Iron, Copper, Pine, and Walnut
Wood-rick and Dressing Oak
Here is my small woodrick inspired by the folks at Plimoth Plantation. With a small door to admit the chickens.

From the west
Dressing a plank of red oak. The radius of the iron leaves tracks.
The iron with a pail-bottom radius takes heavy shavings.
Chainsaw-milled and well seasoned,
Cut just north of the heart with enough character to remain functional.
