Cherry Bonanza

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — peteblair @ 1:00 pm

On Dec 18th I happened to drive by a property where Arborists were in the process of removing a large Cherry tree.

I stopped to ask if I might get some wood to turn and was told that a neighbour had already asked if he could have the tree for firewood.

I met with the neighbour and he agreed that I could take as much wood as I wanted especially if it was ‘squirrely’ which would be hard for him to split for fire wood anyway.

I spent a few hours with the Arborists and took home a real bonanza.

I wound up with a little more than I will probably get to use so if there are any wood turners reading this post who would like a section of a crotch or other piece to turn please leave me a message.
