    My father-in-law has 12" -20" DBH trees. Every year he wacks half dozen just for firewood. If no one has, I can get you plenty of green. Have a 10" round x 14" tall sitting outside the basement door now...

    These are hornbeam, not hophornbeam, but similar enough that they may suit your needs. Figured I'd mention since it's been a few days. 1-2" thick.

    It's a tough but not heavy wood - takes wear and compression reasonably well and is cheap. So practice swords, plane bases, shop push sticks / consumables, handles, rollers...

    Yeah, I saw that and already corrected it to "knot" in the Excel file but too lazy to redo the image here. Definitely a slip of the figner.

    I am very familiar with eastern hornbeam as well. I would love to buy a piece of that from you. Would you mind messaging me? I haven’t quite figured out how to do that yet

    No problem. Like I said, not expensive - flat rate bag is $8 to ship. I think I can fit all four in a bag, though maybe only three. Say $20 shipped, and I will send whatever fits? I will send a pm to coordinate PayPal.

    Mr. Peet, not sure on specific tree ID. These were originally rollers that a contractor used to move large, heavy things (handles compression well). I wound up with a bunch some time ago and cut them down for various things.

    Actually, can't pm you - it is not an option off your profile. I think it is something like you need a few more posts for them to turn on.

    My PayPal is removed per forum rules. Send me an invoice if that works for you and I’ll get it to ya. Or leave me your PayPal. I’ll leave my address in the comments. Thank you

    TJ, don't put your personal info in a post. Only in PM. You can edit it and take it out.

    Just leave one more comment in any thread on the site, and you’re ‘conversation ‘ function will be enabled. I removed your email address to keep the computer bots from putting you on a thousand unwanted mailing lists.
