my weekend haul
« on: February 26, 2020, 04:56:30 PM »
found a guy up in Bills Creek NC who had some wormy american chesnut he wanted to sell.  Interesting story.....he found the log buried when he was cutting down an elm tree to take to his saw mill.  Dug it out with his skid steer.  Had to call an Ag extention agent because he had no idea what it was.  Cut it up about 17 years ago and its been sitting in the back of a building athis sawmill since.

Managed to find a 2 x 8 x 8 without too much rot in it, and a 1 x 10 x 4

Cut it all up last night.  Cant wait to turn some calls out if it

Excuse the condition of my workbench....LOL.....Im in the middle of spring cleaning my shop

Everything looks great to me and bet you get some nice calls out of those blanks.

You should see my work space.

Good turning.

Bet the Camel pack just happened to be left there.
