  2. Ya know - it just might be hickory. I remember now picking some of it up and was amazed at it's hardness. By golly, by gee, Ron I think ya got it my friend.
  3. Dan- right hardness but never hafe I seen it with that color ! !!! Gene, could be - good one

  4. Hello esteemed colleges. Just finished this project and one cataloging it. I always include the species of wood it is cut from. As I said, "can't figger it out" ! Took a couple of pictures for you to ponder. The wood is harder than Oak. I thought it might be Walnut but to me the color is wrong and it is harder than standard Walnut. Anyone have an idea?????? The front side has already been finished with oil base lacquer and the backside is unfinished.

  8. A jointer is one tool I do NOT have.
  9. The piece is 4/4 and about 4' long. I really like the "sled" idea. Thanks Will probably cut it to about 12" long for the sled.
  10. I have this great piece of Sepele that has a slight twist in it. I want to, some how, get rid of this twist. It seems to me that if I just put it through the planer that the twist will not be straightened out. Need help in trying to solve it. Anyone?
  11. Ooooops - forgot the most important thing - - - THANKS, GUYS
  12. What's really kewl is to set the lights up as random colors with a fade-in program. I'll try to get a video of it and upload it.
