Wow! I’ve never seen hairy oak before. Do you have to shave it before you can saw it?
Wood is so fascinating and there are so very many varities from all over the world.

Larry all of your wood is “COOL WOOD” If not before, then when you are done it is the coolest!

Great gloat.

Hairy Oak, beauty and the beast all-in-one then. Good, but strange (or strangely named) wood haul. What you called pine looks more like Mahogany to me, or at least a hardwood. By the way Larry, I now have a plan on what to do with the hairy oak. I hope it will meet with your approval when finished. As you can see, I need a lot of time to get things done. I had hoped to be in the shop today, but will be putting winter tires on two cars instead. Whoopie!

That Hairy oak looks interesting. Besides making a mess with the hair, how is working with it?
