Traded a 4 foot section of of a 16 foot Ambrosia Maple log to a friend for some Cocobolo in photos below. I got the Maple for free so I guess this Coco is free also 🤔 Very dry with voids and drying cracks. I did cut 5 1/2” piece to see how bad it might be cracked inside. Should be able to make a few things…..

That is a cool looking log. Looks like you have some great opportunities to do projects with resin.

Got a fair size apple branch. Aim to saw a few flat stock pieces out of this before the bugs get near it. Hope to go harvest the rest of this tree soon. Not much of it is over 12 inch diameter but it had 3 large branches. So I am hoping to get a few crotch feather cuts to play with. Meanwhile, this is starting at me daring me to do something with it.

That would be an awesome blank for an artsy carving, the dust would probably murder though...
