Here is my wood gloat.
Well I wish it were my wood!
For those who know Olneya Tesota is our beloved Desert Ironwood.
So named because it is dense like iron.

Well less than 2 miles from my house is the biggest Ironwood I've ever seen! Shocked Cheesy

It was worth getting stung by the bees that had their home in this ones neighbor, while taking these pictures!

Before taking a small sample one must consider that Ironwood can weigh up to 66 lbs  per cubic foot Embarrassed

I estimate the main trunk, before it splits off, is about 38" in diameter! 0.o o.0

We wouldn't allow garbage to be served on the table,
why would we allow it to be served to our minds?
