Taking home the leftovers…

one of the great things about working with the arboretum is the wood available… last spring I got some black walnut that was very nice.

Black Walnut

 

this fall I got some Amur Cork tree… I had never heard of it before, the fresh inner bark is blind you bright neon yellow! the wood just under it is bright yellow and it goes to dark muddy yellow in the center… it splits amazingly well, and this piece has almost no twist to it.

I am going to try to use the slabs as tall stool seats and some of those pieces as a book stand… stay tuned

be well
