    Any interest in Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos) wood?

    I turned a couple of pieces into pens a while back. Some of the best pens I have ever made. Wood really had some figure in it.

    Martial Art Weapon (The Human Being Bat)

    I grew up in Martial Arts. Southern Chinese/ Vietnamese Martial Arts to be exact. I have never seen one of these. I imagine that these, like most weapons in Martial Arts are just for coordination and strength. Pretty neat though!

    Any NCWWs a home appraiser??

    I dont know alot about house buying and selling. I do know that my uncle bought 3 houses in Florida about 8 years ago, with intention of selling them in 5 or so years for a profit. All 3 were in the $250-$275k price range. Well 5 years later they were ready to sale them and all 3 had lost...

    Shop Cold? Very Cheap Heat

    amazing what you can do with a barrel. This is probably safer then a real wood stove. this has to layers and most wood stoves only have 1 thick layer. I say if you burn logs in this then they would burn even longer, and proably hotter then with saw dust.

    I dont have it but my step dad has it. He bought his from norther tool in G-boro. I think he only gave about $100 for it. I usually use a file for about 10 sharpening and take them to him for a good sharpening after that. He might see my chains once a year.
