The provision for me in my shop this past week: cutting dovetails in black walnut for a chest, some goat-milk and lime paint for the butcher block legs, and finishing up the milling of the mighty locust.
We cut this big dead Honey-Locust (Gleditsia triancanthos) at Boaz last fall. I cut him in half out there free-hand, which took nearly 3 hours, then hauled him home. After some flattening I cut the halves into 3.5″ slabs. I still had to use the tractor to move them.
