The wood looks great … can be difficult to plane sometimes. See my Hackberry Bench.

Yes. Genus Celtis. Either hackberry or sugarberry. Takes an expert to tell them apart.

Danny, I was hoping you’d chime in, especially given where it was harvested from. Thanks!

Have a small stash of it. Spalted stuff is awesome.

I haven’t gotten a chance to crack any of it open but the ends all look very clear and it was quite healthy so I doubt I’ll be so lucky but you never know.

One of my favorite trees growing up. I would be afraid to guess how many hours I spent staring at the bark and daydreaming of what I imagined parts of the west looked like. It reminded me of mountain ranges. Built my first tree house (ok a triangle sitting perch) in one of the three we had in our yard.

My dad didn’t take to them as fondly as I did and cursed the darn berries and more so the birds that deposited yesterdays meal of berries. He won out and I got to stack firewood.

Have your say...
