No sir, not at all. Did you fill it with ca glue? 

Mostly, some of it I rubbed Titebond into it and rubbed sawdust into it. Its hard to get a complete fill as the glue only goes in partway and as the wood is turned away fresh gaps can appear.

I have three more of different sizes. I pulled one out and checked it, moisture level is down to 10% so I’ll be able to work on it soon.

Dave, when I get time I want to show you some of the curly white oak lumber, I have cut, cutting cross tie logs. 

No, Coop it’s not for sale! :)

Bmac I will pm you a few pics soon. If I post them on here, Dave will be coming up my driveway wanting it. :)

I have the 9/4 tiger hard maple kiln dried. Maybe I can get your order out soon.

Hang on to the scraps on that stuff, it makes so really pretty bowls and platters.

Dave, have you ever seen any ambrosia sweet gum lumber before? I have never seen or heard of it before today.

Wow that’s some pretty wood Rickey, just the one log?

No, I cut four or five sweet gum logs today that was ambrosia.

Dave, I saved Coop couple boards of the ambrosia sweet gum. I knew the Houston Boy would want some. :)

Dad gum, that’s sweet gum? That beautiful bud! I figured it would be harder than bodark!

Sweet gum is probably almost as soft as Basswood.

An old man told me once that he built a chicken coop out of green Sweet Gum.  He said in about a year, the inside was on the outside.

edited to add: I looked it up.  Sweet Gum is janka 850   Basswood is 410, so it's harder than I thought it would be.  It's no good for firewood though.  We used to use it to keep a fire going when we didn't want much heat.  I know a lot of people that won't even burn it.

The last stand of timber we had thinned, the Pine brought $15.25 a ton, and Sweet Gum, that grows like weeds in a new stand of Pines, brought a dollar a ton.
