Thanks, John. Most of the reclamation yard's wood goes into flooring, some into structural beams, a little into furniture. These scraps likely came from a dumpster.

 

A shapes'n'things (visual) artist was over, prowling my stacks & scrap, and asked how I made the inlay. "I fit one piece in there at a time" :TwoThumbsUp:It's a little too labor-intensive for some, the second one didn't go any faster, but once it's done, it's done.  I still have both :OldManSmiley:

They wonderful examples of ingenuity and use of wood, I am also glad to hear the other uses that the lumber is destined for. I have cut into old growth pine in the past, one thing I find pleasing is the aroma, it reminds me of working in my dad's shop for some reason.

I hope you are still woodworking, you have a very unique style and take on the medium of woodworking.

Thanks, John, yes, I'm crafting. In December I picked up a dedicated basement TS, the Dewalt 8 ¼", as well as the Dewalt 2-speed 13" thickness planer.

 

Came across a 2x3 - 7' of straight grain longleaf in my pile. Remembered your glee at seeing images of straight grain pine, how you imagined the pleasure it'd be to cut a piece and have it stay straight.

 

Most of my stuff is pretty delicate.  If I go the vending route, I'll probably want product liability insurance or register as an LLC.  So for now, I'm holding back on sales.  Some of the items are quite robust, those I have not so much an issue with vending, but you can still get a splinter, so it's a conundrum either way.

Uh oh, it's all over now! :lol:

Hey Woodman, are you also thinking about an online presence for your artwork?

I'm trying to figure out if I want to vend or be more of an artist in a fancy gallery . . . 

 

There is a network of craft shows I can join but so far I do not have the full rig nor inventory.  And another project is coming up, painting . . .
