    Greg, I thought the mug shot was the Robbers Dog, not Mal. I like the size of the burls on the timber page. Can you make sure Mal brings down some 2 - 3" thick burl slices to the Sydney show, they are good to do platters with

    Spotted, yes thanks for that. It is quite apropriate since 95% of my timber that goes into my furniture comes from Mal.

    When linking to an external site, use in your HTML target="blank" so it opens in a new page, stops visitors navigating away with every external link.

    Anyway Thanks for the comments, though I guess the jury is still out on the Qld Walnut 10mm boards? Could you use them after the split?
    I've got some dry inch boards, 10" wide, 1 metre long here now. They are backsawn, yet one board has developed a split as well. Good colour though with some sapwood.

    Anyway..... Have I read your blog incorrectly, are there later up and down thoughts?
    How about some photos of your work!

    Regards

    Hi Greg,

    ahhh, the blog. There is more coming, probably as the election gets closer and the claims and counter claims get more outrageous and the pollies get more careless and more arrogant. But frankly I havent had time..... In a sense they are low hanging fruit but so much commercial machinery depends on them that truth will always be a commodity to them.

    Walnut is all split down the guts. Its been racked since I saw you. As for my work, well its taken about six weeks but Ive cracked Bamboo Jews Harps! I have been messing with Bamboo a fair bit as I helped pull out an infestation. I have another to get rid of next weekend which is Black Bamboo so that will be interesting. I'll post in the musical instruments forum later this week.

    Interesting analytics, so just in case you were wondering what websites know about you... Do you do ISP logging?

    Sebastian,
    Dan has posted some information, back about 3 threads, showing major cities and viewing numbers. Sydney leading, but even viewers from the US and UK, Spain, Kiev, Japan, perhaps members of various forums, but certainly shows the spread that a simple blog can generate.
    Hopefully some sales will also result in time.
    I'll get Mal to take some shots at Brisbane www show and we can post them.

    Regards
    Greg

    ISP logging????? still have the training wheels........

    Got my shiny new news letter for April, this is going to be bad, having all this georgous timber put under my nose every month. It was bad enough before ordering the timber I need, now I also will have the timber I WANT put up there. Oh well I get tool pawn news letter I am sure I can handle timber pawn as well.

    Hey Greg,

    I saw you've added some pics. I had a bit of time so I posted them for you. Hope it's alright.

    Default blackbutt

    Thanks Dan
    Looks good.
    Mal is up at the Brisbane www wood show this weekend and I have aksed him to take some shots ther so we can add those as well.

    It has now moved from a work in progress to something more substantial and the blackbutt from Port Macquarie's red soil, will give him some nice slabs, stair treads and boards.
    He still has a large butt pieces from another blackbutt tree, too big for the band saw mill, so he will have to use the Lucas.
    the trouble is, he is spoilt now, the bandsaw mill makes life so much easier....
    Regards
    Greg

    That'd be good to have some pics of the brissy show. Probably should have posted on teh blog he was going.... oh well.

    I emailed Mal last night an order for my next two projects. Blacket box and book case out of cedar. Bookcase have a pale silver ash backing. Fun times.
