Every now and then I just need to pop out a fast project. Been working a lot at the job and at home on spring time projects so I’ve not been in the shop to work for a bit. Just felt the need to build something yesterday so I dug out a old maple board that had been standing in the corner of the garage for a couple years. Ripped it up into 2 inch strips and cut a small piece of red oak up into thin quarter inch strips and glued them up. They are around 16 inches long by 11 inches wide. Project went pretty smooth and I really like the figuring on the one board.

I love small projects and yours looks great.
I was at the saw mill yesterday to get a load of cedar saw dust to mix with cement, sand and lime. I will once again get started on the outside of our home installing our Cedar log end siding.

At the mill we had to wait for a truck that was unloading Cedar logs. They had one log that was set aside from the huge pile of logs. One of the young men asked if I could use it? I forgot what they called it, I will ask them when I pick up the wood they are going to cut for me. He did say it was rare here in Arkansas. On the out side it looks like Cedar but it is a gray/brown on the inside and has a strange smell.
God bless and be safe.
