    A friend had a similar experience with a "bad" motor. He bought a new one and had the burned out motor replaced under warranty. He passed the rebuilt one on to me for some front pocket money and a wood trade. :)

    Brown recluse spider bite

    I was bitten about 20 years ago. I searched the internet and found a report of similar spiders in Australia. They recommended, (and I took,) large doses of the supplement MSM, a type of sulfur. After about a week, the red bloom was gone and I felt fine, with a small wound that healed quickly. YMMV.

    Cutting bowl blanks from green wood

    Neal has good advice. Been there, done that. I finally went to a 1/2"carbide three tooth blade for rounding blanks. Now, same as Roy, I use both a Stihl battery (more expensive but more flexibility,) and electric (cheaper,) chainsaw for longitudinal cuts.

    Modern Handrail near Raleigh in White Oak?

    I got some modern rail and shoe custom made and plowed for craftsman balusters from Baird Bros. in Ohio a few years ago. First shipment had a bowed piece, and was replaced immediately. With Covid-19 issues today, I'd probably look for something I could pick up.

    An interesting beech tree

    My guess would be curly, waterfall or quilted figure in addition to flame. I see similar trees in our 3500 acre mountain community, and always wonder what's hiding in there.
