well, we got home the other day. so i had to get some wood ready. my dad and i bought a log a few years ago, a huge cherry, 16/4, heavy as all get out. so heavy, that we decided to split the nice board down the middle with a chain saw. it was pretty checked down the middle, so no harm done.

the log wasn't as good as we had hope, but there is still alot of wood there. the color is beautiful, but there are loads of checks to work around...

the cherry is going to become a convex wall cabinet soon.

there are a few things that need doing in the shop before i get going. sharpening knives, claiming valuable floor space with a lumber rack, watching for bugs. there's the chunk of cherry on the left.

when i was loading up the rack, i had to move a few pieces of red elm. on the elm, i found these little buggers boring hole in the sapwood. i hope that they didn't populate anything else. the elm is now in quarantine.
