    Now I just want to say that this had nothing to do with me. Just because I vacced fletty's shed floor before we left ("go and play in the shed" he said, so I did) doesn't necessarily mean that fletty forewarned Ray.

Is your grasp of Albanian good enough to figure it out?

    And I suppose what would follow from that is does your mate need some more Electronics done, payable with Green Walnut to you, and several carved spoons for your wife?

    There are even dedicated Spoon Carving weekends, but if Pac Man thinks I'm going to go over to the darkest of dark and have Pen Turners look down on me..... well.....think again buddy.....

    I don't know when it was cut, but the guy only dropped it off here a few weeks ago, and the ends are already checked, so at a guess, I would think it was cut more than 12 months ago, but with the bark still on it should still be fairly green in the middle section.

    My Albanian is about as fluent as my Mandarin. Not good.

    If I can find my moisture meter, ( don't ask) I'll do a quick check around the middle of the log.

    The guy planing was Matty, posts on here under L S Barker.
    Hand made windows and doors from recycled Oregon.
    We drove down from Sydney via Beechworth where we did the rail trail into Wangy.
    We braved the Melbourne traffic to visit a wrecker with a T600 like mine and he passed us onto his mate at Mazda Australia who signed us in and showed us around their collection including another T600.
    Three days in Castlemaine with a mate from Tas and another from Bathurst, Kyneton on Saturday and then down to another rail trail near Smythesdale.
    Off to the coast then driving over to SA for a week on the Murray with 8 others starting next Saturday.

    I did a rough check on the moisture level in the middle of that walnut log, and it's over 24%, my meter only goes from 5% to 24% and it's maxed out.

    I think it could be worth a try at spoon carving, and see if it's any good.

    Walnut generally carves well, and really holds fine detail well because of the grain structure. Whether that's an advantage or not for spoon carving I don't know.

    The wheelwright is Kerry Riehl from Toowoomba. One of the guy's helping him is a member on here, Shiggy. I suggested to him that he might like to make himself known to some of you guy's, but from the look of the photo's Kerry kept him pretty busy.

    It certainly sounds like arriving early is the go, I'll keep that in mind for next year.

    I suppose I could wrap at least one log in two towels and deliver them straight to Skew and nobody would know the difference? As long as my mates all swore to silence, of course.....
    Heh heh, mission accomplished

    Wrapped each log in a towel, put them on a bottom sheet (with elastic), and enclosed. Not even a whisper of Walnut in the car!

    However......I put another box of turned feet on the back seat and the bloody tape came off, leaving Redgum splinters all over the seat.

    "Nay worries" says fletty, "would you like a battery vac?"
    "Nah mate, but thanks - I have one at home" (because the car was going to be taken out be you-know-who almost immediately).

    Small problem - it had been unplugged 18 months ago when a new stove was installed (and the power point was needed for the ignition switches).

    Had to brush them off onto the floor, which of course resulted in painful splinters.

    Anyhoo, it would seem that I have gotten away with it.

    It's endearing that you think that's a possibility.

    If you Photoshop or similar, then "Rotate Canvas" 90° and save. If they are viewing properly without doing that (in Picture viewer) then you might want to save a copy for rotation.

    A few years ago vBulletin decided to ignore the Metadata stored with each pic, which tells the Forum which way they really are. Smart move eh?
