Are down somewhere between Omak and Wenatchee Kelly?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

DaninVan and Herb Stoops like this.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

About the same hardness (Janka scale) as Black Walnut. Maybe not a lot of fun to work with though.

I do a good deal of work with American Holly, stringing, accent and inlay mostly. A chess table once..beautiful wood. Especially when its white as snow and clear. Never thought to look up just how hard it was....thats a interesting little ditty you posted! Kinda took me by surprise.

About twenty miles south of Vantage. More specifically, about five miles south of Mattawa. Even more specifically, in Desert Aire.

Was born and raised in Ephrata, until 59, when my dad took over the Northcross Highway.

Then, around 70, Uncle Sam made me an offer I couldn't refuse. After getting back home to Washington, have lived in various places, until I landed here.

I used to go down the other side of the Columbia through Ellensburg back in the early 70's going back and forth from here to Portland. I remember most of the apples being north of you. Interesting country. On one side of the Cascades it's rain forest and the other side is a desert.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

We are surrounded by thousands of acres of apples and vineyards. Lot of row crops too. Area has grown a lot in fifty years.
