Not that it means spring is right here by any means. The previous “Farmer’s Almanac” had a saying: “As the days start to lengthen, the cold starts to strengthen.” But that’s okay…all the extra cause to spend time in my heated workshop.
Having simply been to Texas, I picked up a few mesquite logs that I plan to flip into some bowl blanks. For their dimension, they’re fairly mild, so I’m anxious that they might be spalted to the level of being punky. I hope they’re workable. But there is just one manner to discover out, and even when the wooden is a bit iffy, I’ve obtained abilities that may simply save the day. More on this later!
