Default New Project

Yeti was out foraging for some food one day and came across these piles of wood.
They are holding core samples from a mine in Northern Ontario.
Yeti wants to make something out of the wood but needs some ideas.

Hi yetiatlarge

How about a big fire,, after you plane it down ,looks like you have a nice stack of 1/4" thick stock...

If you can get them planed down to 1/4 inch to 5/16 that is a great size for small boxes and a great size for box lid panels. If it's good wood it's work a try! Might be able to laminate some up for turning if you are a turner as well.

How about mass producing wine racks, the profile looks about right.

Those boards would be good to use for the face of a free standing bar. No need to hide the faults, a rustic look would be neat... rough slab for a top. They could also be used for siding on dog houses. (If there is any left)
