How cool is
Oct 2nd, 2009 at 7:09pm
 
How cool is my wife?  I got a text today: "We are having a tree cut down in the front of our school today, so I grabbed one of the rounds.  I have no idea what type of wood it is or if it's good, but free wood is free wood!"
It is 11" round by 12".  Attached is a picture of it after I sealed it.  I just feel very lucky today.......

Judging from the appearance of the bark, your wife scored you a nice piece of birch... Smiley

That's really cool!!!!! My wife did the same for me. They were cutting down a tree by her office (she works for the town) and instead of the town having to pay to dump it, they dumped it in my driveway for free!!!!!!!!!!! can't beat that with a stick smiley=thumbsup.gif

Oh I know David but letting my wife see that other wives bring home wood for their husbands is not because it's something I want her to do...it's more that I think it's something she would enjoy doing, like buying shoes.

Congrats on the wood and the wife. smiley=thumbsup.gif  Mine has bird-dogged a couple neighborhood wood hauls for me, including one elm tree that had some 24"+ diameter rounds.

Excellent score.

Wizz,
I think it's time to send Bre's wife a rolling pin. I think she really needs one.  Grin
