Time for our own

I scored 2 1×6x7 boards of Catalpa today, they will be used to make my wife a cross for our home. I make and sell these crosses and she asked me why we don't have one in our house hmmm good question. The grain in this wood is very beautiful, she should be happy with the outcome. When my wife is happy I am happy which is pretty much all of the time.

That looks nice, this is not a very common tree. I'm not planning on using mine for lumber.
How did you acquire it? Was it storm damage or just in the way of progress? i have never
seen it in a lumber yard.

I have a friend in Addison, MI that has a mill. He took down a catalpa tree for a lady and made her a table from it, it is awesome. He has some boards left so I took a few off his hands.

I found some nice Catalpa boards at a Saw Mill in Huntsville, TX. I'm thinking about building a Box…A humidor for my Nephew.
