Here's my latest, American Black Walnut. Tried the Keltic idea again , a bit better. SWMBO has claimed it.
We had a walk with the dogs in the woods at Invier , a lovely mixed wood land,. There's a small sawmill there , got myself a slab of hornbeam and some lime wood.
I've been wanting to try this wood for a while, maybe a seal or a fish would look good in this wood. If its as hard as I'm told I'll use power tools.
